A grant is made to a qualifying student who:
- is currently graduating from a high school in Delaware regardless of place of permanent residence; or
- attends a college in Delaware regardless of place of permanent residence; or
- lives in the immediate area of neighboring States (PA, NJ, MD) regardless of where the student attends college. “Immediate area” is defined generally as that within 20 miles of the nearest border of Delaware.
A student who receives a grant while meeting the geographical requirement is eligible for renewal of the grant even if he/she is not within the geographical area served at the time of renewal.
