Report by the Task Force on Student Financial Aid.
State Board for Higher Education Record, v9 n1 Sep-Nov 1983
A summary of the 1983 report of Maryland's Financial Aid Task Force is presented that identifies four goals for student financial aid programs and provides statistical findings, interpretations, and recommendations. It is noted that the Task Force focused on the level of student financial need and the appropriate role of the state in meeting this need. Analysis of the adequacy of student support was estimated by using an average minimum cost necessary for a student to attend college. Recommendations are offered regarding the following existing programs: the General State Scholarship Program, the Distinguished Scholar Program, the Proprietary School Program, the Professional School Program, and the Delegate Scholarship Program. The establishment of a College Work Study program and the creation of merit-based scholarships to encourage students to become teachers in areas of critical shortages are also recommended. (SW)
