Projection of Minnesota State Grant Spending for Fiscal Years 2004 and 2005.
Minnesota Higher Education Services Office
This is the sixth report presenting projections of spending for the Minnesota State Grant Program as required by state law. The Legislature recognized that many economic uncertainties influence the estimation results and strengthened the projection process by mandating a monthly statement on spending and updated quarterly projections. Another important change required direct communication with the post-secondary education community. Information about enrollment changes and tuition and fee increases was received from representatives of the various sectors. This information is used in the projection process and directly impacts the results. This report only presents a brief update of the projections from the previous issue. A more detailed explanation of the methodology can be found in the July 15, 2004 report, Projection of Minnesota State Grant Spending for Fiscal Years 2004 and 2005.
