Lincoln College is the latest school to step up and cover the Monetary Award Program grants while the state continues to withhold the money.
Students attending Lincoln College this fall will have their map grants fully covered by the college after the board of trustees voted to shift resources to make that happen. College President David Gerlach says students are on edge.
Gerlach says the decision wasn't an easy slam dunk for the College Board of Trustees.
80 percent of Lincoln College students are Map Grant eligible. Those grants average $4,000. Student financial stability is crucial for Lincoln College as they continue their transition from a two year college to a four year school.
