PageNumbers: 35-56


Listed below are the agencies responsible for administering the
SSIG, Paul Douglas Teacher Scholarship, and the Robert C. Byrd
Honors Scholarship programs in each state, along with a contact
person for each agency. The SSIG agency is listed first, the Douglas
agency (in states where the Douglas program operates) is listed
second, and the Byrd agency third. In many of the states, the SSIG
and Douglas programs are administered by the same agency, while
the Byrd program is administered by either the State Education
Agency (SEA) or by a different agency. The contact for each agency
is usually the program official, designated as such with a "(P)" in
front of his or her name. When there is no program official, the
official listed will be the senior agency official. That person will be
designated as such with an "(A)" in front of his or her name.
Individual students should contact the financial aid administrator at
their schools to resolve any eligibility issues. Financial aid
administrators may use the contacts on the following pages to
resolve any other programmatic or technical issues that come up.
