Higher education funding


Governor Pritzker is looking to add $100 million to the MAP grant program, bridging the gap from federal student aid, to make community college free for most working-class students.

The governor hopes this encourages Illinois students to earn degrees in industries with high demand for new workers.

According to our news partners at WAND TV, the increased MAP grant funding, paired with a 7% increase in funding to City Colleges, is helping keep tuition down and improvements up.

The governor said since taking office he has increased MAP grant funding by 50%.
