Bivens and Associates, Inc., Dover, DE.
This study has been directed toward the determination of the scope and nature of state financial assistance to private higher education institutions in the various states. An evaluation and analysis of the data collected for this project leads to the following conclusions: (1) Private higher education institutions in Delaware as well as in other states provide a valuable service and have a role to play in meeting the educational needs of Delaware students. (2) It is in the highest public interest to preserve the vitality of Delaware's private colleges. (3) A precedent has already been established for public assistance to students in Delaware based on the provision of scholarships to students pursuing courses of study in special areas. (4) Thirty-five states have established some type of public financial assistance for private higher education clearly demonstrating the need for such a program. (5) The most common method of state financial aid to private higher education is by means of aid to students. A recommendation of the study states that consideration should be given to some form of financial assistance to private higher education in Delaware in the future. (Author/PG)
