IL MAP Grant Announcement 2023-24

Excellent news for students!

The fiscal year 2024 (FY24) state operating budget has been approved and signed into law by the governor, and includes a historic high Monetary Award Program (MAP) appropriation (approximately $701 million, which is $100 million more than had been appropriated for 2022-23 MAP awards). As a result, Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) recommended – and the Commission approved – a formula that increases the maximum 2023-24 MAP award from $7,200 to $8,400 per year.

UIS is working diligently to update all MAP-eligible student aid offers for 2023-24 to reflect this increase in MAP Grant funding. The increase in MAP funding may result in other changes to student aid offers, to be compliant with all federal, state, and institutional financial aid policies. The IL MAP Grant is available only to IL residents seeking a first bachelor's degree who demonstrate financial need.

The State of Illinois continues to make significant strides by making greater investments in higher education and helping its citizens to earn an undergraduate degree. Please visit the ISAC MAP Grant webpage for full details about the MAP Grant program.
