National Association of State Scholarship and Grant Programs. 8th Annual Survey, 1976-1977 Academic Year.
Boyd, Joseph D., Comp.
This survey is designed to provide information on state- and territory-funded scholarship and grant programs to undergraduate students with financial need who wish to attend public or private institutions at the postsecondary level. The tables show a comparison among the states of 1975-76 and 1976-77 estimates of the number and percentage of monetary awards, dollars paid out, average award, and amount paid per person according to the 1970 census population. Rank order tables are provided showing the percentage change in state funded awards; dollar awards per 1970 population; and percentages of all need-based awards. Program characteristics for each state are outlined. Percentages of awards at public and private institutions are compared by state. Significant changes in program operations for 1976-77 are noted as are the relationships of each state program to the Basic Educational Opportunity Grants (BEOG). Other information provided includes the impact, if any, of the Keppel Report (National Task Force on Student Aid Problems) on state agency decisions; court actions involving state agencies; and a directory of the National Association of State Scholarship and Grant Programs (NASSGP) member agencies.
