A Handbook for Use in the Preparation of Student Expense Budgets.
Clark, Robert B., Ed.
This publication reports the results of a National Student Expense Budget Conference, attended by members from all echelons of the national financial aid community. The conference's purpose was to arrive at definitive positions regarding the components of budgets, the methodology of budget construction and the variables which may properly be considered in such construction. Out of 10 working committees, six addressed the problems of defined student types: disadvantaged, nontraditional, graduate and professional, part-time, undergraduate and career school. Within these committees, the conferees developed parameters for the different budget components as those components related to the specific student type under consideration by the committee. Two of the other committees addressed subjects having direct bearing on student budgets: Economic Standards Within Student Budgets and Methodology for Data Collection. The last two dealt with the administration of financial aid: Budgeting Federal Student Financial Aid Dollars and A Method for Training Personnel in the Preparation of Student Budgets. (Author/BP)
