This survey was designed to collect information for the 1974-75 academic year on the extent of student participation in Office of Education programs, the characteristics of aid recipients, student charges and the amounts and sources of student aid available at institutions of higher education, and to elicit suggestions for improving the operation of federal student aid programs. The six programs for which data were requested are: (1) Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program (BEOG); (2) Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program (SEOG); (3) State Student Incentive Grant Program (SSIG); (4) College Work-Study Program (CWS); (5) National Direct Student Loan Program (NDSL); and (6) Guaranteed Student Loan Program (GSL). The survey questionnaire was sent to all 644 members of the Higher Education Panel of the American Council on Education. Suggestions for improvement fell into two main headings: administration and program design. (Author/KE)
