COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) introduced legislation that would create an additional source of grants or scholarships specifically for Ohio students attending the University of Notre Dame. 


 


Under the legislation, any Ohio resident who wishes to support the University of Notre Dame can purchase the appropriate license plate, which will showcase the school’s design. There will be an additional charge of $40 on top of the original costs for the plate—$10 to be used by the BMV for administrative purposesand $30 to be directly earmarked for additional grants and scholarships for Ohio students attending the University of Notre Dame. Purchasers of the plates shall remain anonymous from any school database, unless they complete a consent form to release their information to the schools.


 


“The specialty license plate for the University of Notre Dame is a new financial mechanism, in which, the students of our state will greatly benefit,” said Rep. Anielski.  “I am excited to have the opportunity to assist our most precious gifts, our children, in developing into thriving empowered adults.”


 


A local Cuyahoga County Notre Dame Alumni, John Kurtz, said, “The Notre Dame Nation in Ohio is looking forward to the opportunity for an ND license plate which will support scholarships for Ohio students attending The University of Notre Dame.”
