I found the following paragraph in some research that I did:
Course of Study. The course of study may not be limited to those that are are of particular benefit to the employer. If the courses of study includes one or more of benefit to the employer, the scholarship may not be conditioned on the recipient choosing that particular course of study. The recipient must have a free choice as to pursui9t of a course of study.
Apparently a course could by of particular interest to the employer, if the student has a alternative choice. I still do not have a clear definition of what constitutes a course of benefit to the employer. A wide range of courses could be of benefit to employers if the employee is better educated generally. That is why employers ask for a person's level of education. What is meant by "of particular benefit to the employer"?
