During 1972-73 the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency had to deal with the problems of both the victims of the 1972 flood in Pennsylvania and the returning veterans. The report covers three state programs. (1) The State Scholarship Program made 105,501 awards at $62,759,544. There were 30,701 recipients who were 1972 high school graduates, 56,108 "renewals" (also had awards in 1971-72 but needed assistance to return to school in the fall of 1972). (2) The State Student Loan Program for 1972-73 gave loans to 36,037 first-time borrowers. For the year, there were 71,779 loans made, and their total value was $88,286,429. (3) The Matching Funds Program matches federal money for National Direct Student Loan (NDSL), Nursing Student Loan (NSL), and College Work-Study (CWS) with state funds. In 1972-73 nine federal to every one state dollar went to NDSL; nine federal to every one state dollar went to NSL; and four federal to every one state dollar went to CWS. (Author/KE)
