Illinois Schools Struggle To Fund MAP Grants
Many Illinois colleges and universities fronted the money for income-based Monetary Award Program grants to students in the fall semester. That's despite the lack of a state budget and no assurance that they'd be reimbursed.
Major schools will continue covering them for the spring, although others are telling students they can't cover the debt for the coming semester.
The list below shows a sampling of schools, their enrollment, the number of students receiving MAP grants in the fall, and the total amount covered.
