CHEYENNE — The Senate Education Committee has endorsed a bill that would add to the requirements for applying for the top tiers of the Hathaway Scholarship.

House Bill 177 was approved unanimously by the panel on Monday. It now goes to the full Senate for debate. The measure has already passed the House.

The bill would require applicants for the Hathaway honors and performance level scholarships to take either two years of career and vocational education or two years of fine and performing arts courses.

The proposed requirement would be in addition to the other mandatory courses needed to get a Hathaway Scholarship, such as the foreign language requirement.
