Modesto Junior College, A Study of the Financial Aid Program.
Angove, Gerald; And Others
A study was conducted to learn more about the operation of the financial aid program and the students who participate in it at Modesto Junior College. Three sample groups were used: (1) all students who received financial aid in fall 1971; (2) all first-semester freshmen who received direct aid in fall 1971; and (3) third semester continuing students who were originally a part of the fall 1971 first semester sample. Results showed that: (1) 26.5% are responsible for themselves and cannot expect more than $200 per year from their parents; (2) aid recipients more often come from broken homes and/or have parents in the lower income brackets; (3) although the largest number of students receiving financial aid was Caucasian, Chicanos and blacks had the highest percentages of their students as aid recipients; (4) 51% plan to get a B.A. or higher degree; (5) 67% of the first-semester freshmen in the sample completed 12 or more units in fall 1971; (6) 58.2% received less than $300 during the 1971-72 school year.
