The Ways and Means: A Study of the Needs and Resources of Students Enrolled in United Negro College Fund Member Institutions. Research Report Vol. 2, No. 1.
Davis, Jerry S.; Kirschner, Alan H.
A study funded by the Southern Education Foundation had as its purpose to identify, describe, and assess: (1) the costs of education to United Negro College Fund (UNCF) students in 1975-76; (2) the resources available to meet those costs; (3) the need for additional aid resources; and (4) some major relationships among college costs, financial aid policies, institutional finance, and student access to UNCF colleges. All of the 41 UNCF colleges and universities are fully accredited, private, predominantly black institutions. Students were randomly surveyed with the Student Resource Survey, a data collection and analysis system developed by the College Entrance Examination Board. Information was compiled in 11 areas: (1) personal and academic characteristics; (2) why students attend UNCF colleges; (3) UNCF college characteristics that are important to the students; (4) student expense budgets; (5) scholarships and grants; (6) loans; (7) student employment during the term; (8) total aid and unmet needs; (9) total resources available; (10) financial aid and institutional finance; and (11) the federal cost of education payments to colleges.
