Sec. 2001. Congressional statement of findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress finds that -

because a high regard for the public trust and a lively

exercise of political talents were outstanding characteristics of

the thirty-third President of the United States;

because a special interest of the man from Independence in

American history and a broad knowledge and understanding of the

American political and economic system gained by study and

experience in county and National Government culminated in the

leadership of America remembered for the quality of his

character, courage, and commonsense;

because of the desirability of encouraging young people to

recognize and provide service in the highest and best traditions

of the American political system at all levels of government, it

is especially appropriate to honor former President Harry S

Truman through the creation of a perpetual education scholarship

program to develop increased opportunities for young Americans to

prepare and pursue careers in public service.

Sec. 2009. Harry S Truman Memorial Scholarship Trust Fund

-STATUTE-

(a) Establishment

There is established in the Treasury of the United States a trust

fund to be known as the Harry S Truman Memorial Scholarship Trust

Fund. The fund shall consist of amounts appropriated to it by

section 2013 of this title.

(b) Investment in interest bearing obligations

It shall be the duty of the Secretary to invest in full the

amounts appropriated to the fund. Such investments may be made

only in interest-bearing obligations of the United States or in

obligations guaranteed as to both principal and interest by the

United States. For such purpose, such obligations may be acquired

(1) on original issue at the issue price, or (2) by purchase of

outstanding obligations at the market place. The purposes for

which obligations of the United States may be issued under chapter

31 of title 31, are hereby extended to authorize the issuance at

par of special obligations exclusively to the fund. Such special

obligations shall bear interest at a rate equal to the average rate

of interest, computed as to the end of the calendar month next

preceding the date of such issue, borne by all marketable

interest-bearing obligations of the United States then forming a

part of the public debt; except that where such average rate is not

a multiple of one-eighth of 1 per centum, the rate of interest of

such special obligations shall be the multiple of one-eighth of 1

per centum next lower than such average rate. Such special

obligations shall be issued only if the Secretary determines that

the purchase of other interest-bearing obligations of the United

States, or of obligations guaranteed as to both principal and

interest by the United States or original issue or at the market

price, is not in the public interest.

(c) Sale and redemption of obligations

Any obligation acquired by the fund (except special obligations

issued exclusively to the fund) may be sold by the Secretary at the

market price, and such special obligations may be redeemed at par

plus accrued interest.

(d) Credit to the fund of interest and proceeds of sale or

redemption

The interest on, and the proceeds from the sale or redemption of,

any obligations held in the fund shall be credited to and form a

part of the fund.
