Filling the Financial Aid Gap: The Performance-Based Scholarship Demonstration
Richburg-Hayes, Lashawn; Patel, Reshma
Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness
The intention of the program is that conditioning additional financial aid on certain behaviors will lead students to increase their effort towards their studies, which in turn will lead them to perform better in their classes in the short-term and progress through their degree requirements at a quicker rate in the medium-term. The program is hypothesized to result in increased enrollment in subsequent terms, increased credits attempted and earned, and increased financial aid. Increases in these short-term education outcomes may then lead to changes in medium- and long-term educational outcomes, including year-to-year persistence, total cumulative credits earned, as well as graduation or transfer to another postsecondary institution. The proposed presentation will focus on the primary research question: What is the impact of performance-based scholarships (in various settings with different types of students) on short-term academic outcomes as well as medium- and long-term academic outcomes? The authors will present current findings on these outcomes, across the six sites in their demonstration. (Contains 4 tables and 1 footnote.)
