Land-Grant College Revenues.
General Accounting Office, Washington, DC. Health, Education, and Human Services Div.
This report provides information on the amounts and sources of education funding for land-grant colleges, including historically black and tribal schools. A total of 107 land-grant schools were identified, including 59 institutions funded under the 1862 Morrill Act, 19 historically black land-grant institutions, and 29 tribal land-grant institutions, which received land-grant status in 1994. Revenue for 98 of the 107 schools (for which data were readily available) totaled $27 billion for the 1992-93 school year, including $4.57 billion in federal funds. Comparative analysis indicated that while tribal schools had the greatest federal revenue per full-time equivalent (FTE) student ($7,032), they had the least total revenue per FTE student ($9,920). Although the 1862 land-grant schools received more federal revenue per FTE student than historically black land-grant schools ($4,105 vs. $3,177), historically black schools received more U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) revenue per student than the 1862 schools ($911 vs. $745). Six enclosures provide information on the scope and methodology of the study, 1992-93 revenue for the 107 land-grant institutions, federal revenue for tribal institutions, and USDA programs that fund land-grant institutions.
