Student Aid: Description and Options.
Lee, John B.; And Others
This report describes the distribution of financial aid to undergraduate students. All sources of funds are included and accounted for on a state-by-state basis. The Federal Office of Education programs are further described by institutional type and student income levels. The distribution of OE programs results in the following conclusions: (1) students in two-year public schools are relatively underawarded given their need and students in four-year public schools are slightly overawarded. (2) Low middle income students ($6,000-$9,000) receive less aid than students from all other income categories. (3) Students in public colleges are more likely to receive Guaranteed Student Loans and Basic Grants while private college students receive more Supplemental Grants and Direct Student Loans. The second part of the study was the development of a linear programming model that can simulate the distribution of student aid under different legislation and appropriation levels. (Author)
