Illinois State Scholarship Commission Report.
Illinois State Scholarship Commission, Deerfield.
The Illinois State Scholarship Commission (ISSC) is responsible for the administration of 9 state authorized and funded financial aid programs for Illinois postsecondary students. The major programs consist of: (1) nonrepayable monetary awards, and (2) guaranteed educational loans. The purposes of the Commission's programs are to: (1) equalize educational opportunity; (2) preserve diversity in higher education by permitting freedom of institutional choice; (3) conserve public funds by making it possible for needy students to utilize unused spaces at Illinois nonpublic colleges; (4) permit a student's in-school employment or loans to be at a modest level so as to not affect his studies or career plan; (5) combine with institutional and federal aid and parents funds to meet the college costs of the institution of the applicant's choice. The Monetary Award Program provides nonrepayable aid to needy students; neither test scores nor records are assessed when application is made. The Illinois State Scholarship Program identifies high school seniors with superior ability; and the Illinois Guaranteed Loan Program guarantees loans made for educational expenses. This document also presents statistical tables concerning the Commission's other programs: grants for children of Illinois prisoners of war, scholarships for bilingual students, and payments for veterans at public community colleges.
