A promise scholarship applicant shall no longer be eligible for continued promise scholarship awards once the applicant has reached the lifetime limit pursuant to K.S.A. 2021 Supp. 74-32,274, and amendments thereto.
(b) To the extent that promise scholarship funds remain available, each promise-eligible institution at which the promise scholarship recipient is enrolled shall continue providing promise scholarship funds to the recipient for credit hours that are within a promise-eligible program if the recipient meets the following conditions:
(1) Continues to maintain satisfactory academic progress in the courses of the promise-eligible program for which a promise scholarship was awarded;
(2) has not reached the lifetime limit established by K.S.A. 2021 Supp. 74-32,274, and amendments thereto; and
(3) continues to meet all other eligibility requirements for the promise scholarship.
(c) Any promise scholarship recipient may use promise scholarship awards to pay for no more than the lifetime limit established by K.S.A. 2021 Supp. 74-32,274, and amendments thereto, regardless of the number of promise-eligible programs in which the recipient enrolls.
