In the last 10 years student financial aid has been characterized by a surge of enormous growth that has been both rapid and largely uncoordinated. The current situation is classified into four major headings: student confusion; serious managerial problems; lack of conceptual clarity; and special problems in need analysis. The implications of the findings are concluded to be serious. The multiple programs, apparent inconsistencies, and managerial problems create a poor delivery system for student financial aid, which will continue to increase the amount of confusion and uncertainty among the applicants, recipients, and the personnel who advise them. Funds are likely to be used inefficiently. The poor delivery system could cause inefficient management to the extent that Congressional and state legislative enthusiasm for student financial aid programs could be depressed. Developments and changes in the State Scholarship Program, the College Opportunity Grant Program, the State Guaranteed Loan Program, the Supervised Clinical Training Program, the Medical Student Contract Program, the Law Enforcement Personnel Dependents Scholarship Program, and the Research Program are reviewed with statistical data included.
