Sec. 4. Functions of Department. The Department shall prepare and supervise the issuance of public information about the provisions of this Article; prescribe the form and regulate the submission of applications for scholarships; determine the eligibility of applicants; award the appropriate scholarships; prescribe the contracts or other acknowledgments of scholarship which an applicant is required to execute; and determine whether all or any part of a recipient's scholarship needs to be monetarily repaid, or has been excused from repayment, and the extent of any repayment or excused repayment. The Department may require a recipient to reimburse the State for expenses, including but not limited to attorney's fees, incurred by the Department or other agent of the State for a successful legal action against the recipient for a breach of any provision of the scholarship contract. In a breach of contract, the Department may utilize referral to the Department of Professional Regulation to revoke, suspend, refuse to renew, place on probationary status, or take other disciplinary action concerning the recipient's credentials. The Department is authorized to make all necessary and proper rules, not inconsistent with this Article, for the efficient exercise of the foregoing functions.
