DeSalvatore, Kristen; Hughes, Linda
This report presents data for the 1994-95 academic year on state-funded student aid in 13 tables. States awarded over $3 billion in student aid to over 1.8 million students, an increase of 8 percent over 1993-94. Of this award, 78 percent was need-based aid to undergraduate and graduate students, while 13 percent was non-need-based, and 9 percent fell in the category of "other aid." Of the $2.5 billion in need-based aid available, 99 percent went to undergraduates. Of the $407 million in non-need-based aid, 91 percent went to undergraduates. Five states (California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania) collectively awarded $1.5 billion in undergraduate need-based aid, comprising 61 percent of the total awarded in this category. A number of states increased their effort significantly between 1988-89 and 1994-95, increasing expenditures by 100 percent or more over the period. These states were Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, North Dakota, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. Five states reported an increase in need-based undergraduate funds of more than $20 million over 1993-94 levels. These states were California, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The tables provide detailed data by state and also show data for previous years for comparison. (DB)
