Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 9.28. Graduation incentive grant program.
    (a) The graduation incentive grant program is hereby created. The program shall be implemented and administered by the Board of Higher Education to provide grant incentives to public universities that offer their undergraduate students contracts under which the university commits itself to provide the courses, programs, and support services necessary to enable the contracting students to graduate within 4 years. Grants shall be awarded from appropriations made to the Board of Higher Education for purposes of this Section.
    (b) To be eligible for grant consideration, a public university shall annually file a report with the Board of Higher Education detailing its 4-year graduation contract program. The report shall include, at a minimum, the following information: the number of undergraduate students participating in the program, the requirements of the 4-year graduation contracts offered by the university, the types of additional support services provided by the university to the contracting students, and the cost of the program.
    (c) In awarding grants to public universities under this Section, the Board of Higher Education may consider each applicant's report data, the number of institutions wishing to participate, and such other criteria as the Board of Higher Education determines to be appropriate.
    (d) The Board of Higher Education shall annually submit to the Governor and the General Assembly a budgetary recommendation for grants under this Section and shall notify applicants for grant assistance that the award of grants under this Section is contingent upon the availability of appropriated funds.
    (e) The Board of Higher Education may adopt such rules as it deems necessary for administration of the grant program created by this Section.
