The Outstanding Scholar Recruitment Program: An Evaluation
Phipps, Ron; Clinedinst, Melissa; Merisotis, Jamie
Institute for Higher Education Policy
The New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) requested that the Institute for Higher Education Policy evaluate the outcomes of the state's Outstanding Scholar Recruitment Program (OSRP). In particular, HESAA asked that the Institute determine the program's effectiveness in increasing the enrollment and retention of high-achieving New Jersey high school graduates at New Jersey colleges and universities. This assessment by the Institute strives to determine effectiveness by examining the growth of the program, the degree of overlap with other financial aid programs in New Jersey, the geographic disbursement of OSRP recipients, the program's impact on regional enrollment patterns, the retention and graduation rates of OSRP students, and comparability with other merit-based programs in other states. (Contains 10 tables & 4 figures.)
