Academic Performance of Financial Aid Recipients, 1969-70.
Gold, Benjamin K.
During the 1969-70 academic year at Los Angeles City College, 1,127 items of financial aid were given to 757 students. The purpose of this report is to present information on the number and types of aid administered, the students receiving aid, and findings of preliminary investigation into their effects on academic performance. The kinds of financial aid considered were those administered under California Senate Bill 164, Extended Opportunity Act of 1969, and specially funded programs. The aid was in the form of loans (12 per cent), direct grants (41 per cent), and various types of jobs (47 per cent). Other data recorded and analyzed include: type and amount of aid, sex, age, race, high-school background, units attempted, units completed, and grade points earned. The findings, which are summarized, suggest hypotheses for future testing. (CA)
