L. A. C. C. Financial Aids 1973-78. Research Study #79-1.
Gold, Ben K.
This summary of financial aids provided to Los Angeles City College students from 1973-1978 considers the four major vehicles for federal aid: (1) Basic Educational Opportunity Grants (BEOG); (2) National Direct Student Loans (NDSL); (3) Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG); and (4) College Work Study (CWS). Data tables outline amounts of aid, numbers of recipients, average amount of aid per recipient, and sex/ethnic characteristics of recipients. During the five years studied nearly 20,000 financial aids totaling over $10,000,000 had been provided for LACC students. Amounts of aid from NDSL and CWS increased slightly over the period, whereas assistance under BEOG grew from about 400 students receiving $100,000 in 1973-74 to over 5,000 students receiving nearly $3,000,000 in 1977-78. Data indicate that female recipients outnumbered male recipients in about the same ratio as their representation in the college population. Blacks (40% of the student population) received slightly over half of the aids, while White, Hispanic, and Asian students followed in that order, each showing percentages somewhat below their percentage in the college population.
