State aid, indirect or direct, available to private institutions or their students is presented by state in tabular form. The forms of such aid, which in 1977 were provided by all but four states (Arizona, Nebraska, Nevada, and Wyoming) and the District of Columbia, fall into six major groups: student assistance; direct institutional aid; contracts; special programs for disadvantaged students; support for medical, dental, nursing and health-related fields; and provision of facilities authorities to enable independent institutions to take advantage of tax-exempt bonds for capital construction. Results show that: 39 states provide student aid programs to students in both private and public institutions; 26 states provide specialized student aid programs to students in private and public institutions; 18 states provide student support for medical, dental, health-related and veterinary education; 23 states provide student institutional support for one or more medical, dental, nursing and/or veterinary schools; 14 states provide direct institutional support; 17 states contract directly with independent institutions; 6 states fund specialized programs for the disadvantaged available to students in either public or private institutions; and 13 states provide authorities for tax-exempt bonding to private institutions.
