Modifies the proposed changes to GS 116-281 to clarify that the dependent relative must provide a letter of intent to establish NC residency to the eligible private postsecondary institution (previously, did not specify private institution; however the statute only provides scholarships for students attending private higher education institutions) in order to qualify for the need-based scholarship for students who are dependent relatives of a veteran who is abiding in NC while sharing an abode with the veteran.
