Applied Management Sciences, Inc., Silver Spring, MD.
Who gets student financial aid and how much is given is the focus of this second volume of a two-volume study on program management procedure in the Basic Grant and Campus Based assistance programs. Section I provides general supporting information for the study. It begins by sketching the background and context of the subject of student aid, including the history of its development, a review of the extant literature, and a discussion of the role of the student in the financial aid delivery system. Section II provides the empirical results of this study. The section begins with a macro-level view of distribution of financial aid funds and then moves on to a discussion of two aspects of distributive equity-vertical mobility and the impact of financial aid on the rates of participation in higher education. The final chapter focuses on the relationship between equitable outcomes and institutional discretionary management practices. Appendices include major project deliverables and the current financial aid programs administered by the U.S. Office of Education. Exhibits and tables offer statistical support throughout the report.
