Who Gets Financial Aid?
Strong, Stanley R.
Research Bulletin, v16 n3 19p Dec 10 1975
University records of 1,048 randomly selected students were examined to determine differences among students who received financial aid, students who applied for but did not receive aid, and students who did not apply for aid. No differences were found between students who received aid and those who did not receive aid in high school rank, Minnesota Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, cumulative grade-point average, and total credits at the University of Minnesota. Large significant differences were found in father's occupation and educational level. Those who received aid came from significantly lower socioeconomic background than those who did not receive aid. Students who applied for aid but did not receive it tended to have higher aptitude test scores than both those who did not apply for aid and those who received aid. (Author)
