More than 1,000 Roosevelt students may be affected if the Monetary Award Program (MAP) is not funded by the State of Illinois. Students were promised this need-based grant in their financial aid package, but there is no funding yet available to pay for these grants. A bill to fund MAP (SB 2043) will go to the Governor on today, Feb. 16.
RU invites students, faculty and staff to gather outside the Thompson Center at 100 W Randolph St., Chicago, today from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. to rally with other students and universities.
Please join us and spread the word to students and colleagues. We encourage you to make a sign with “Support MAP Funding,” “Governor Rauner sign SB 2043,” etc.
