Trends in Financial Aid to Students in Maryland Postsecondary Education.
This report presents 10-year trends about financial aid awarded to students attending Maryland's colleges and universities during the decade of the 1990s, using reports submitted to the Maryland Higher Education Commission by higher education institutions as the data source. The total amount of financial aid support from all sources provided to students attending Maryland postsecondary institutions more than doubled from 1990 through 1999, increasing by nearly half a billion dollars. During the same time period, the number of aid recipients increased by 40.4% to 169,167 students, and the proportion of Maryland undergraduates receiving financial aid rose from 38.7% to 58.4% over the decade. The percentage of graduate and professional students receiving aid rose from 37.5% to 54.4%. The report provides information about the sources of aid, the contributions of state and federal entities, and the characteristics of students receiving financial aid. An appendix contains the data tables. (Contains 15 figures and 41 tables.) (SLD)
