MIA/POW Scholarship Grant
Administered by the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs
What is it?The MIA/POW Scholarship Grant is a grant which, if you qualify, will cover tuition and some fees at all Illinois state-supported colleges, universities, and community colleges. If eligible, a student is given 120 units of credit, equivalent to approximately 4 years of study, towards credit and non-credit, undergraduate and graduate level courses at Illinois state-supported schools. The grant is administered by the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs and is subject to their rules and regulations.
Now what?Correspondence will be sent from the State of IL Veterans Office. Once you receive the letter and the scholarship card, bring copies to the Financial Aid office.
In order to use your grant you must: 1. Be enrolled at an Illinois public 2- or 4-year college. 2. Not be in default on any student loan, nor owe a refund on any state or federal grant. 3. Maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher.
After confirming this information, we will be able to pay your account.
★ The MIA/POW scholarship does not cover laboratory fees, online course fees, late registration fees, technology fees or auxiliary fees at this time; therefore, be aware these costs will fall to you, the student.
