Possible MAP grant cuts would affect thousands - Abigale Svoboda, Daily Illini

On Wednesday, Interim Chancellor Barbara Wilson sent an email to MAP-eligible students notifying them that if money is not allocated for MAP grants in the state budget, students will need to pay back the money their account was credited for the fall semester. Students would not receive grants for the spring semester. The announcement has left students with MAP grants uncertain of how, or if, they will be able to afford University tuition in the spring. Additionally, students may have to determine how to repay their MAP grants — a program that is never supposed to require repayment, even after graduation.
