Expanding Opportunities for Equal Access to Higher Education for Ohioans: A Report on the Ohio Instructional Grants Program.
Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus.
The need for the Ohio Instructional Grants (OIG) Program was significant at its creation and has grown in the initial five years of the program. The report provides background on the need for the program that has been responding to the need of students from low and moderate income families, but has been serving proportionately and absolutely fewer low-income families in recent years. The overall conclusion of the review is that the OIG program continues to merit the highest public priority but requires modification if it is effectively to provide access to higher education for students from low and moderate income families and choice among Ohio's higher education institutions. The overall priority for modifying the OIG program would be to provide increased aid to reduce financial barriers for existing eligible students before extending eligibility to new groups of students. To further improve the administration of the program, the recommendations are made in four major areas: communications, processing, flexibility, and equity. The projected costs for implementing the recommendations are detailed. (Author/JMF)
