Lost without a MAP: College unable to fund monetary awards for 2016– 2017 - Megan Bennett and Lauren Kostiuk, Columbia Chronicle

Columbia will not fund student Monetary Award Program grants for the 2016–2017 academic year, according to President and CEO Kwang-Wu Kim. The decision announced on April 4, two days after more than 3,000 prospective students attended Open House, reflected the college’s inability to cover another year’s worth of payments if the state’s budget stalemate continues, Kim said. “It comes down to [the fact that] we just can’t afford it,” Kim said. http://www.columbiachronicle.com/campus/article_b0354dec-f91d-11e5-b83d-43e9e0a369d8.html
