Reeher, Kenneth R.; Davis, Jerry S.
This report presents the results of an annual survey (1989-90) of states with general programs of scholarship or grant assistance for undergraduate study. Section I presents highlights and a summary of the survey's results. Section II offers comparative program statistics for 1988-89 and 1989-90 with some data from earlier years. Section III documents current policy issues and concerns including planned program changes, new programs, and changes that states would like to see in the reauthorization of the Title IV programs of the Higher Education Act. Section IV provides estimated award distribution by student categories for comprehensive undergraduate need-based scholarship and grant programs for 1989-90. Section V ranks state grant program expenditures by resident populations, per resident college-age population, by estimated grant dollars per full-time enrollment, by proportions of full-time undergraduates receiving awards, and by total state grants as percentage of appropriations of state tax funds for higher education. Section VI covers trends including new state programs, state and federal grants compared, state undergraduate and graduate grants, changes in average college costs, and need-based state grant dollars as a percent of combined state grants, Pell grants and other funds. A final section lists officers of the National Association of State Scholarship & Grant Programs and provides information on state grant agencies. (JB)
