(a) The legislature may pay tribute to the memory of Alaskans who, by the example of their lives, or by their distinguished contribution and service to this state, their community or their profession, exemplified the best that is the challenge of "The Great Land" by the creation of memorial education loans as a part of a general memorial education revolving loan fund, setting out the purpose for which each is created, and the conditions applicable to each loan.

(b) The purposes of the several memorial education loan accounts in the memorial education revolving loan fund are as follows:
