Bradley Hoping to Receive Funds from Monetary Award Program

Monetary Award ProgramBradley University is staying optimistic after last Thursday’s Senate and House signing of the bill for the Monetary Award Program, or MAP for short. MAP is a program which grants money to low-income students so they can attend college. Even though the bill passed in the House and Senate, it is predicted to not make it past Governor Rauner.

Bradley spokeswoman Renee Charles said in an interview with the Peoria Journal Star that “it’s definitely critical to Bradley because more than 1,000 students here receive funding from that grant.”

If the MAP bill passes Illinois, students would gain access to almost $400 million to help complete their education.

The governor has 60 days to sign the bill for it to pass.
