The organizational structures of each state agency and its advisory group are described, along with policy issues of concern to states. Information is also provided on application procedures and schedules by state and program; student residence and other criteria for evaluating financial aid applicants; types of institutions eligible for state aid by program; priorities given to certain applicants by some programs; factors that determine maximum awards; and budgets used in computing need-based state awards.
