c) ISAC shall disburse funds in two or three installments, depending on the number of terms financed by the award, except that multiple disbursements shall not be required in cases where the applicant's eligibility is not determined until the final term of the academic year for which the funds are being awarded or when a student is attending only one term and the maximum award does not exceed the student's cost of attendance.
d) Funds shall be remitted by ISAC to institutions on behalf of the recipients.
e) Upon receipt of the funds, the institution shall verify the recipient's enrollment status for the term for which the award was intended.

1) Nurse educator scholarships are applicable toward tuition and fees.
2) A recipient attending a public institution in Illinois shall receive a scholarship that shall not exceed the cost of tuition and fees at that institution.

4) A qualified applicant will also receive a stipend of not more than $10,000 for full-time enrollment. The stipend will be used to cover the cost of attendance, including living expenses. Stipends for recipients enrolled less than full-time will be prorated according to the credit hours taken.
