State Funded Post-Secondary Tuition Assistance, 1998. Special Report.
Georgia State Dept. of Audits, Atlanta.
This report provides information on Georgia's state-funded tuition assistance programs for postsecondary students. It notes that state-funded tuition assistance is available to students attending public and private postsecondary educational institutions, both in and outside of Georgia. Aid is provided either by awarding scholarships or by waiving tuition. Estimates indicate that in fiscal year 1997, more than 190,000 students received more than $262 million in state-funded tuition assistance. The report also answers specific questions regarding Board of Regents or Department of Technical and Adult Education programs not previously reviewed in the Program Evaluation of Educational Incentive Programs, and defines which dependents of University System of Geogia and Department of Technical and Adult Education employees are eligible to receive free tuition. Two large tables provide detail concerning each of the 19 state-funded tuition assistance award programs and the 15 tuition waiver programs (separated into out-of-state and in-state tuition waivers). Additional tables appended provide data on award dollars and numbers of students, by individual institutions in the state university system, individual technical institutes, or private and out-of-state institutions.
