Financial Aid for New York State Students. A Report by the Board of Regents to the Governor and the Legislature in Fulfillment of Section 606 of the Education Law.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
In recent years much attention has been focused on the subject of financial aid to college students. This report from the Board of Regents in New York is divided into two parts: a review of the current state programs and a study of the socioeconomic characteristics of current scholar incentive award holders and how they finance their education. The purpose of the study of scholar incentive award recipients was to gather data with regard to total parental income and assets, the total costs of college attendance, and all resources available to finance these costs. The information has been used to construct a scholar incentive program proposal that has an optimum relationship to family support, costs, and other sources of aid. The review of current state programs provides a statistical summary of the grant, scholarship, and fellowship programs administered by the State Education Department for 1972-1973. Brief descriptions of other State and Federal programs of financial aid to students are also included. (Author/PG)
