Springfield, IL – (Effingham Radio) – One Illinois state senator says Illinois college students need more than just priority status when picking a school.
State Senator Sue Rezin yesterday introduced a plan to offer qualifying college students a four year MAP Grant.
Currently, those grants are based on need and awarded for one year.
The new state budget gives returning MAP recipients priority for next year’s grants.
But Rezin says Illinois students need to know they can count on financial aid for all four years.
