The Federal Educational Opportunity Grant Program: A Status Report, Fiscal Year 1970. Final Report.
Friedman, Nathalie; Thompson, James
This report on the Educational Opportunity Grant (EOG) Program is based on data obtained from students receiving grants and from financial aid personnel administering the program at the institutional level. The data cover fiscal year 1970 (academic year 1969-70). An analysis of the data was performed to assess the extent to which the program goal of extending the opportunity for higher education to high school graduates of exceptional financial need was being met. The major conclusion resulting from the analysis is that the EOG program is achieving its goal. Fourteen major recommendations stemming from the study are given. The seven chapters of the report are: Evaluation Research; Methodology; "The EOG Student"; The EOG Institution; Financial Aid: Policies, Practices, Packaging; The Site Visits; and Components of Program Success. The text proper contains 57 tables, and Appendix A is comprised of 26 supplementary tables. Appendix B contains the results obtained from analyzing institutional and student responses by institutional type and control. States in Federal DHEW Regions during FY 1970 and 1971 are listed in Appendix C, and Appendix D lists the 20 Site Visit Schools. A 65-citation bibliography is given, and copies of the questionnaire for institutions and the questionnaire for students are provided. (DB)
