Currently, over 8,000 UIC students – roughly 45% of all undergraduates – have received a Monetary Award Program, or MAP, Grant. In fall 2016, UIC disbursed over $16 million in MAP funding. Please join members of Illinois’ higher education community at Loyola University’s Water Tower Campus on Saturday, October 29th to learn best practices for MAP advocacy and make your voice(s) heard regarding student financial aid.
Student leaders from Illinois public, private, and community colleges and universities, as well as government relations, media relations, and financial aid staff members are invited to attend a summit on MAP advocacy efforts.
This summit will give student leaders an opportunity to join a statewide coalition of grassroots advocacy on behalf of students who receive MAP grants.
- Learn valuable advocacy tools for engaging legislators
- Be able to coordinate their institution’s efforts with others
- Have the opportunity to network with fellow student leaders
- Play an instrumental role in saving MAP grants
Sessions will include:
