State Funded Scholarship/Grant Programs for Students To Attend Postsecondary Educational Institutions: The National Association of State Scholarship & Grant Programs 25th Annual Survey Report, 1993-94 Academic Year.
Davis, Jerry S.; And Others
This report documents results of a survey of the 52 members (the 50 states, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) of the National Association of State Scholarship and Grant Programs (NASSGP) which collected data concerning state-funded programs of scholarship or grant assistance for postsecondary students. Text sections present a summary and highlights; comparative program statistics for 1993-94 and earlier years; new programs, program changes, and program plans; 5-year trends in need-based undergraduate grant dollar expenditures by states; and rankings of state grant program expenditures. Twenty-three tables present data concerning grant aid awarded by types of programs, level of student, and need versus non-need basis; grant dollars per resident; percentage of undergraduates receiving grant awards; and total state grants as a percentage of appropriations of state tax funds. Survey highlights indicate that: (1) in 1993-94, states are expected to award just under $3 billion in grant assistance to almost 1,900,000 students, representing an expected growth rate of about 12 percent over 1992-93; (2) states spend an average of $7.80 per resident for all grant programs, about $77 per "college age" resident, and about $230 per full-time undergraduate student; and (3) only 16 states increased their need-based grant dollars enough to keep pace with inflation of college costs. A list of NASSGP officers and a directory of state grant agencies conclude the report. (JDD)
