Sec. 5705. Christopher Columbus Fellowship Fund

-STATUTE-

(a) In general

There is established in the Treasury a fund to be known as the

Christopher Columbus Scholarship (FOOTNOTE 1) Fund (hereafter in

this chapter referred to as the ''fund''), which shall consist of -

(FOOTNOTE 1) So in original. Probably should be ''Fellowship''.

(1) amounts deposited under subsection (d) of this section;

(2) obligations obtained under subsection (c) of this section;

(3) amounts contributed to the Foundation; and

(4) all surcharges received by the Secretary of the Treasury

from the sale of coins minted under the Christopher Columbus

Quincentenary Coin Act.

(b) Investments

(1) Duty of Secretary to invest

The Secretary of the Treasury shall invest in full any amount

appropriated or contributed to the fund.

(2) Authorized investments

Investments pursuant to paragraph (1) 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

-

(A) on original issue at the issue price; or

(B) by purchase of outstanding obligations at the market

price.

(3) Special obligations

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 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, if

such average rate is not a multiple of 1/8 of 1 percent, the rate

of interest of such special obligations shall be the multiple of

1/8 of 1 percent next lower than such average rate. Such special

obligations shall be issued only if the Secretary determines that

the purchase of other obligations of the United States, or of

obligations guaranteed as to both principal and interest by the

United States or original issue at the market price, is not in

the public interest.

(c) Sale of obligations

Any obligations acquired by the fund (except special obligations

issued exclusively to the fund in accordance with subsection (b)(3)

of this section) may be sold by the Secretary at the market price,

and such special obligations may be redeemed at par plus accrued

interest.

(d) Interest

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.

(e) Availability of fund

(1) Stipends

The fund shall be available to the Foundation for payment of

stipends awarded under section 5704 of this title.

(2) Expenses

The Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to pay to the

Foundation from the interest and earnings of the funds such sums

as the Board determines are necessary and appropriate to enable

the Foundation to carry out the provisions of this chapter.

(f) Disbursements

Disbursements from the fund shall be made on vouchers approved by

the Foundation and signed by the Chairman.
