College Board, Washington, DC. Washington Office.
This report presents annual data on the amount of financial assistance available to postsecondary students in the form of grants, loans, and work-study. The data cover virtually all federal aid and most state and institutional assistance; not included in the study is financial aid in the form of indirect subsidies, students' wages, employer-paid tuition assistance, credit card debt, or tax incentives benefitting students and parents. Text and 19 tables and figures explain and display a variety of data for the period 1988-89 to 1998-99. Trend data presented includes aid awarded to postsecondary students in current dollars; aid awarded in constant dollars; average tuition and fee charges; number of recipients and aid per recipient for specific programs; federal need versus non-need aid volume; and total federal outlays on Title IV student aid programs. Appended are two tables that provide data from 1963-64 to 1987-88, and additional tables providing loan data. Notes and source information are also appended. (DB)
