What are the requirements for a Scholar to

continue to receive scholarship payments under the NSSP?

A Scholar who has received a scholarship under this

part for at least one year of undergraduate study is eligible to
receive a scholarship for a subsequent year of undergraduate
study under Sec. 652.41(b) or (c), if, at the beginning of that
subsequent academic year, the Scholar--

(a) Is enrolled as a full-time student at an institution of

higher education for the purpose of receiving a baccalaureate
degree, unless the institution has determined that unusual
circumstances justify waiver of the full-time attendance
requirement and the Secretary has waived the full-time
attendance requirement as provided for in Sec. 652.43(b);

(b) Continues to major in one of the scholarship

disciplines, or provides a written assurance to both the State and
the institution of higher education at which the Scholar is enrolled
of his or her intent to major in one of the scholarship disciplines,
if it is the policy of that institution that a student not declare a
major until later in his or her course of study; and

(c) Maintains a high level of academic achievement, as

defined by the institution, in--

(1) His or her overall course of study;

(2) Those science, mathematics, or engineering

courses in which the Scholar has enrolled; and

(3) The Scholar's major, if declared.
