Competing Risks or Different Pathways? An Event History Analysis of the Relationship between Financial Aid and Educational Outcomes for Latinos
Gross, Jacob P. K.; Torres, Vasti
Center for Enrollment Research, Policy, and Practice
Using a competing risks event history model this study explores the effects of differentiated forms of financial aid on the postsecondary enrollment patterns of Latino college students in Indiana. Much of the prior research on financial aid has employed cross-sectional methods, which assume that the effects of aid do not vary across time. This assumption does not match current practices and those required more nuanced techniques to consider the influence of financial aid. Knowing more about the relationships between timing of aid and academic success among Latinos has practical implications for enrollment managers and campus financial aid practitioners who can use these findings to more effectively distribute scarce resources to students. (Contains 3 figures and 8 tables.)
