IIT Tells Students To Pay Back MAP Grants Amid State Budget Impasse - CBS Chicago

The Illinois Institute of Technology has abruptly informed students who get state-funded grants that they must repay the money they received for the previous fall semester, or not be allowed to register for upcoming summer or fall classes. Last fall, Illinois Tech credited students who qualified for Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants, anticipating that the governor and state lawmakers would resolve the state’s budget stalemate and provide funding for the need-based scholarships. However, with no end in sight to the budget impasse, Illinois Tech students who qualified for MAP grants have been told they must come up with the money they were credited. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/03/25/iit-map-grants-illinois-tech-budget-impasse/
