Estimated Effects of the President's FY 1983 Budget on Colleges and Universities in the States. A Research Report from the State-National Information Network.
Balz, Frank J.
The loss in selected federal student assistance programs in the states and by institutional control based on President Reagan's budget request for funding year 1983 is estimated. Funding levels for 1981-1982 for the campus-based programs (Special Education Opportunities Grant Program--SEOG, College Work-Study--CW-S, and the National Direct Student Loan--NDSL) and 1980-1981 funding of Pell Grants are also included. For independent colleges and universities and the students enrolled in them, the cuts in the funding levels for these programs mean a loss of about $543 million and 662,000 awards. The losses at independent schools in six states comprise about 42% of total loss to the independent sector. These states are New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Illinois, California, and Ohio. The methodology for estimating the losses in the Pell Grants and campus-based programs began with 1980-1981 data on Pell Grants and 1981-1982 data on SEOG, CW-S, and NDSL. These levels were reduced proportionately based on the President's proposed FY 1983 budget. The level for Pell Grants, proposed to be funded at $1.4 billion, was reduced by 40.47%; the level for SEOG, proposed to be zero funded, was reduced by 100%; the level for CW-S, proposed to be funded at $397.5 million, was reduced by 27.20% and the level of NDSL, also proposed to be zero funded, was reduced by 100%. The current funding level and estimated loss for NDSL refers to the federal capital contribution only and does not take into account loans made from the institution's revolving loan funds. Therefore, some loans will still be made, but not with federal capital. Fifty-three pages of funding data are presented. (SW)
