Additional Information: The Monetary Award Program (MAP) provides grants, which do not need to be repaid, to Illinois residents who attend approved Illinois colleges and demonstrate financial need, based on the information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You are not required to submit high school grades or test scores when applying for a MAP grant. A listing of Illinois colleges approved to participate in this program is available online at the ISAC website. ISAC works with the college to disburse funds for this program. The college certifies student eligibility and then submits a payment request on behalf of the student. Depending on the college, students may be responsible for payment until program funds are received. Qualified applicants who are awaiting receipt of funds from this program should contact the Financial Aid Office or Business Office to determine the college's policy.

Award Amount: The actual amount award depends on the calculation of financial need, the cost of tuition and mandatory fees, the number of enrolled hours, and other factors related to the amount of funding provided for the program each year. For the current academic year, the maximum award amount is up to $4,968 annually. Awards are renewable providing the student does not reach the maximum allowed credit hours, the maximum number of MAP Paid Credit Hours is capped at the equivalent of 135. Please visit the ISAC website for additional information regarding the MAP Paid Credit Hour limits.
