Accessibility and Student Aid.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
This document presents a comprehensive review of undergraduate student aid programs at provincially assisted universities in Ontario, with emphasis on accessibility to higher education. It was the purpose of the Subcommittee on Student Aid to determine the best means of financial support to students that would best benefit all persons seeking postsecondary education. Loan programs, it was found, are often a barrier to higher education for persons from low economic backgrounds. These persons would prefer to have no education at all if it means going into great debt. Thus, the subcommittee recommends a financial aid policy that would call for those with the ability to pay for their educations to do so and for those unable to pay, a scholarship program that would not have to be fully repaid.
