The Monetary Award Program (MAP) provides grants, which do not need to be repaid, to Illinois residents who attend approved Illinois colleges and demonstrate financial need, based on the information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Kendall students who meet the requirements for Illinois residency are assessed for eligibility for the Monetary Award Program (MAP) as part of their standard application process. Students, and parents of dependent students, may be required to document a minimum one-year of Illinois residency.
The specific award amount for this program is set by the State and is affected by the student's major, credit load, and need as calculated by federal methodology.
Some states, other than Illinois, provide awards to students who are domiciled in the home state but attend school in other states. For more information visit the U.S. Department of Education at www.ed.gov.
