2023-24 ING Grant Application Now Available
Attention members of the Illinois National Guard: The 2023-24 interactive application for the Illinois National Guard (ING) Grant Program is now available to complete and submit online via the Program Applications & Status Checks area of the ISAC Student Portal. Use the 2023-24 application to apply for the fall 2023, spring 2024 and summer 2024 terms.
Effective with the 2023-24 academic year, there are no longer priority consideration dates by which ING Grant applications must be submitted each term. Rather, ING Grant applications must be received by ISAC in time for eligibility to be determined and the applicant to then notify the college about their eligibility no later than the last scheduled day of classes for the first term for which benefits have been requested.
In addition, applicants must have a profile in the ISAC Student Portal in order to complete and submit the ING Grant interactive application (applicants cannot access the application as "guests"). If you have not already done so, be sure to create a profile in the ISAC Student Portal. Once you have a profile, you can return to the Student Portal to check your application status, verify the number of ING Grant eligibility units you have remaining or, if necessary, print a duplicate copy of your ING Grant eligibility notification.
Because this is an entitlement program, receipt of benefits does not depend on the annual budget process. Illinois public two- and four-year colleges are required to waive any eligible tuition and allowable fees that are not covered by state appropriations.
Reminder: Interactive Application for the IVG Program Available
The interactive application for the Illinois Veteran Grant (IVG) Program is also available to complete and submit online via the Program Applications & Status Checks area of the ISAC Student Portal. Applications for the IVG Program can be submitted any time during the academic year for which assistance is being requested, and need to be submitted only once to establish eligibility (i.e., recipients of IVG benefits do not need to reapply each year).
