Rose amends Illinois MAP program after conversation with Millikin President

After discussing the importance of MAP grants with Millikin President Dr. Patrick White earlier this month at the Decatur Community Leaders Breakfast, State Sen. Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) amended House Bill 5020 to ensure non-profit colleges, such as Millikin, would also be included in the new four-year Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants.
 House Bill 5020 previously included four-year MAP grants for only public universities.
House Bill 5020 expands MAP grant awards to public institutions and non-profits from annually to four years. Currently, students have to reapply every year for their MAP grants.
Local community colleges, such as Richland, are also included in the legislation.
