The Distribution of Student Aid to Mexican American College Students 1972-73.
Lee, John B.; Malgoire, Mary A.
Information is given on the number of Mexican American students that received aid from College-Work Study, National Direct Student Loans, and Supplemental Education Grants in the 1972-73 school year. Data are based on the 1970 Census and the 1972-73 fiscal operations forms filled out by student aid officers to account for Federal funds spent in their colleges for student aid. The four tables show the total state population for the five southwestern states and selected states with substantial Spanish populations, the total college population, the college aid-recipient population, the distribution of Spanish aid-recipients across types of institutions, the per recipient award, and the distribution of aid-recipients by institutional types. Data indicate that Mexican American recipients were slightly less likely to have a direct loan and slightly more likely to receive a Supplemental grant than the average for all students (there was no difference in the distribution of College-Work Study awards); Mexican Americans made up 9% of the aid recipients in 2-year public institutions, 5% in 4-year public institutions, 3% in 4-year private institutions, and 2% in 2-year private institutions; and over half the Mexican Americans receiving aid were in public colleges and universities.
