The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) is the state agency responsible for managing an extensive array of student financial aid programs for the State of Illinois. One of ISAC’s most exciting and dynamic initiatives is the ISACorps, whose main mission is to expand ISAC’s college access and outreach programs and services to help students navigate the process of applying to and entering college. The ISACorps program is funded by the Department of Education’s College Access Challenge Grant. The objectives of the program are to raise college awareness, increase the number of underrepresented students planning, preparing, and applying to college, and to raise FAFSA completion rates.

ISAC seeks to contract for facilities for our Challenge Grant counselor training to be held for approximately six weeks during Summers of 2013, 2014 and 2015. Accommodations include housing, food services and training facilities for approximately 80-120 people.
