Lack of State Budget Creates Financial Aid Crisis for Low-Income Students - Amanda Collins, Chicago Defender

“130,000 College students in Illinois are on the brink of a crisis that no one is talking about” These are the low-income students who were counting on the state’s Monetary Award Program (MAP) to afford tuition payments. But with the state budget at a grinding halt, they face the threat of paying back thousands of dollars in financial aid that they were promised. If money for MAP isn’t appropriated in the next couple of weeks, those students will face a terrible decision. http://chicagodefender.com/2015/10/11/lack-of-state-budget-creates-financial-aid-crisis-for-low-income-students/
