Financial Aid: Who Needs It? MIS Research Profile, Volume One, Number 1, Mar. 1973.
Jackson, Linda M.
This report examines various aspects of financial aid including financial need as the basis for financial aid to students and the problem of inadequate funds. Recommendations suggest: (1) When forms are administered to the students, more guidance is needed to make them aware of the differences in the two systems presently serving the colleges and universities. The American College Testing Program (ACT) and College Scholarship Service of the College Entrance Examination Board (CSS). (2) Forms which would be more appropriate to the families of students served by the Black institutions must be developed. (3) Assets consideration seems to favor those who have assets by allowing those persons so endowed to keep a certain amount of their assets in reserve. However, those persons not as fortunate are not given allowances that would enable them to draw from their income to obtain similar assets. (4) Consideration should be given to the differences in costs of living in different sections of the U.S. (Author/MJM)
