    The duration of award for the Merit as well as the Merit and Need Awards is the length of the program, in academic years, for which the award is made, e.g. three years for a three-year program; six years for a six-year program, etc. Years count only if the institution is in session. Status of recipients that change their course of study during the period of award will be reviewed and their awards may continue subject to the original number of academic years in the initial award and the maintenance of the award and eligibility criteria.
