A Florida Perspective on Enrollment Impacts That Will Result from Recent Financial Aid Trends.
Micceri, Theodore
This study evaluated effects of two governmental financial aid programs to increase student access to higher education: the Florida Bright Futures Scholarships (FBFS) and the Federal Tuition Tax Credit (FHOPE). The FBFS program, similar to the Georgia HOPE (Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally) scholarship program, rewards academic performance in high school. The FHOPE program is intended to make college more affordable for lower income individuals. Analysis focuses on effects of financial aid on enrollment, and data from Georgia's HOPE scholarship program. This study also compared matched samples of Georgia students--2,080 borderline HOPE recipients and 2,047 borderline non-recipients. Analysis suggests that enrollment effects of these programs at the University of South Florida are indirect as increased student persistence and increased student credit hour loads (resulting from better qualified entering students receiving FBFS grants) will affect enrollment, specifically by requiring an increase of more than 300 25-seat, 3-hour course sections by 2001. Suggestions for incorporating scholarships and grants into enrollment, and enrollment projection formulas are offered. (Contains 37 references and 5 tables.) (DB)
