During the spring of 1974 a series of seminars on student aid programs and student access was held in connection with the congressional hearings on Title IV of the Higher Education Act. This seminar report on four new concepts for facilitating student access seeks to communicate some of the critical issues and concerns raised by the participants who have had major responsibility for developing or analysing the concepts. The concepts discussed are as follows. (1) The Educational Security Fund is proposed as a federally sponsored, independent agency intended to give to the children of middle-income ($15,000-$30,000) families total access to postsecondary education. (2) Two Years of Low or No Tuition in Postsecondary Education is a concept that constitutes one aspect of a much larger topic first suggested in a Carnegie Commission on Higher Education report. (3) Two Wisconsin programs of student assistance are based on the concept that public subsidies can best be targeted at the conclusion of the postsecondary educational experience. (4) The Hartke Family Tuition Assistance Plan provides across-the-board tuition assistance for all students at all types of accredited postsecondary institutions, regardless of the student's residence or status (independent or parent-supported) and regardless of whether the institution is public or private.
