Equity Packaging of Student Financial Aid.
Brown, Ronald M.
Packaging student financial aid, bringing the various forms of assistance together into a combination of resources sufficient for an individual student to meet college costs, reflects national and institutional philosophy about who should have access to higher education and who should pay, and how the pool of applicants is to be treated equitably. The importance of packaging policies and procedures lies in the growing multiplicity of sources of aid and the fact that aid is different in kind. Equity packaging, the combination of self-help and nonself-help aid distributed equitably to similar students, is discussed in detail. The underlying principles for such a program are outlined as is the practical implementation. The packaging plan should determine the needs of the applicant pool; the applicant's resources; what can be expected in terms of reasonable self-help; how much need remains; and how the remaining need should be met. One experimental use of equity packaging using the CSS Financial Aid Form (FAF) is outlined. (JMF)
