SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Senator James Clayborne (D-Belleville) supported a measure that funds the Monetary Award Program for FY 16. Senate Bill 2043 provides the funds the Illinois Student Assistance Commission uses to help students pay for college.
“Students seeking a higher education should be afforded these opportunities,” Clayborne said. “It’s intolerable to force our students to drop out of school due to lack of funding for a program we know works.”
