No-Need/Merit Awards. A Survey of Their Use at Four-Year Public and Private Colleges and Universities.
Sidar, Alexander G., Jr.; Potter, David A.
Results of a survey of the use of no-need/merit awards (grants, scholarships, and tuition remissions) at 398 higher education institutions are presented. The study sought answers to six questions: (1) What is the extent of use of no-need awards? (2) Has there been any tendency for the extent of use of no-need awards to change over time? (3) For what purposes are these awards used? (4) To what extent are the awards seen as successful in achieving these purposes? (5) What are the sources of funds for no-need awards? (6) To what extent does the use of no-need awards alter the amount of financial aid available to needy students? The appendix contains a copy of the no-need/merit awards questionnaire sent to the institutions. (Author/SPG)
