Perceptions of Financial Aid among California Latino Youth
Tomas Rivera Policy Institute
This document summarizes the results of a 15-minute survey that was administered to four hundred 18-24 year-old Latino youth in California to determine their perceptions of financial aid. Among the key findings were that (1) three out of four Latino young adults who did not attend college cited lack of financial aid as a factor in their decision not to attend; and (2) less than 20 percent of Latino young adults have an accurate perception of attendance costs at the University of California or California State University systems.
