Student Financial Aid in the United States: Administration and Resources.
Moon, Rexford G.
In order of their importance in 1961, the administrative outlets for funds for undergraduates were: colleges and universities (70 percent); the federal government (17 percent), state governments (9 percent), and others. In order of importance as sources of funds for graduate support were: the federal government ($200 million), colleges and universities ($21 million), others ($20 million), and state governments ($10 million). The number of foreign students coming to America with support from public or private agencies in the United States is five times the number of American students going abroad with similar support. State and federal government aid has tended to carry more restrictions for the student than has the same type of aid when offered by private agencies, and financial aid in general has been more restricted for graduate than undergraduate study. Historically, the colleges and universities have played the dominant supportive role for all kinds of student support programs, except for the period of about 10 years after World War II. The states were the first noncollege group to make major efforts in the student aid area; the federal government is only recently a major contributor to these activities. (Author/MSE)
