The College Opportunity Grant Program of the California State Scholarship and Loan Commission; A Report on and Evaluation of the 1969 and 1970 COG Selection Procedures.
Klingelhofer, Edwin L.
The College Opportunity Grant (COG) program was established by the California legislature in 1968 and was intended to provide monetary grants to financially needy students, primarily from ethnic minorities, to assist them while attending college. This paper contains: (1) a side-by-side description of the characteristics of the 1969 and 1970 applicants and grant recipients: numbers, reasons for ineligibility, ethnic backgrounds, types of institutions enrolled, and anticipated majors of COG winners; (2) an evaluation of the success of the 1969 program based on an analysis of the college performance of that year's winners; (3) a discussion and appraisal of the program as it now stands; and (4) a summary and recommendations.
