Achieving the Dream Students and Financial Aid. Data Notes. Volume 2, Number 2, May/June 2007
Topper, Amy
Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count, this issue of "Data Notes" looks at who receives aid, how much they receive and how financial aid relates to persistence. The data show that among full-time students in the 2003 Achieving the Dream cohort, students of color were more likely to receive grants to fund their postsecondary education than were white students. Furthermore, full-time students who received financial aid were more likely to persist, although this relationship was stronger for some racial/ethnic groups than others. (Contains 3 figures and 8 footnotes.)
