Alabama Student Grant Program. Tenth Annual Report, 1987-88 Academic Year.
Alabama State Commission on Higher Education, Montgomery.
A report on the Alabama Student Grant Program, a state grant-in-aid program for Alabama residents attending certain independent institutions in the state, summarizes program history and activity, describes program eligibility requirements, indicates the institutional distribution of grants, and ranks the fields of study pursued by grant recipients. The distribution of grants among subject fields, including dollar totals and average grant amounts, is also tabulated separately for each of the 13 participating institutions. During the 1987-88 academic year, the number of grant recipients ranged from a low of 16 at one institution to a high of 1,337 at another. A majority of grant recipients majored in business administration (39%), general liberal arts and sciences (16.5%), or education (7.5%). About 5% majored in a technological or occupational program at the associate or sub-baccalaureate level. The proportion of recipients enrolled in a technical-health area more than doubled during this year. (MSE)
