Scholarship Description

ISAC Monetary Award Program grants are available to eligible 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). To be eligible, you must: be a U.S. citizen or an eligible noncitizen or meet the “undocumented student” criteria of the RISE Act; be enrolled a minimum of three hours per term; not be incarcerated; not be in default on any student loan, nor owe a refund on any state or federal grant; and not have received a bachelor's degree.

Your eligibility for the MAP grant will be automatically determined if the approved Illinois college at which you plan to use the award is listed on your FAFSA or, for some students, on the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid (Alternative Application). Verification of eligibility, and announcement of an estimated award amount (if any), is performed by the college each academic year. Only if you are eligible will an estimated MAP grant appear on a financial aid award notification from your college. Each academic year, the amount of the maximum annual award for which you are eligible will be the least of: the amount determined by an analysis of your financial circumstances; the maximum amount which ISAC allows for tuition and fees at the college; or $8,400 for the 2023-24 and subsequent academic years<./p> Scholarship Search
