This hearing before the U.S. Senate considered the proposed family contribution schedule for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grants Program. The schedule determines student eligibility for the Basic Grant program and establishes the degree of financial need for each Basic Grant applicant. After opening comments by Senator Pell, Leo Kornfeld, speaking for the U.S. Office of Education, briefly outlined the progress of the program during the five academic years it has been in operation and described the proposed changes in the family contribution schedule for the 1979-80 academic year. Statistical data and an excerpt from the "Federal Register" on the family contribution schedules are part of his presentation. Dallas Martin presented the positions of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators on the proposed schedule. John Phillips of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities offered some general observations about the essential nature and purpose of these proposals. Additional information includes communications on the schedule and statistical data on student funds. (SW)
