(This amendment adds $3.4 million GF the first year and $3.9 million GF the second year to equalize the Tuition Assistance Grant award amount for graduate students with the rate received by undergraduate students. Currently, graduate students are eligible for only partial awards. This amendment helps support individuals pursuing advanced degrees in nursing, mental health counseling, pharmacy, and other medical fields, with the goal of preparing new workers for career areas facing workforce shortages in Virginia.)
