Representative Andy Kim of New Jersey plans to introduce a national scholarship displacement bill in September. A working draft is attached below.
The Adams County Community Foundation in Gettysburg, PA is advocating for this bill which is focused on transparency and data, and would require universities to notify students if their scholarship is displaced. The bill also calls for a U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) study of the frequency and demographics of scholarship award displacement.
Rep. Kim is seeking support from scholarship providers in all 50 states. If any scholarship provider would like to join the Adams County Community Foundation and be listed as a supporting organization, please let me know. Rep. Kim would be notified of your support and reach out to members of Congress in your district in an effort to seek their support.
If you have questions or would like to be listed as a supporting organization, please email me at email@example.com so that Congressman Kim's office is alerted.
