The accessibility of higher education has increased greatly in recent years. Although aid of the customary type--scholarships, fellowships, loans, etc.--probably has not increased materially, if at all, the Federal Government's program for assisting students has enabled a far greater number of young people to attend college during the 6 years that the student aid program has been in operation than would otherwise have been the case. In 1937-38 the National Youth Administration obtained from each institution of higher education which cooperates in the Administration's program of student employment a statement of the amount of aid given to students in scholarships, fellowships, grants-in-aid, loans, and student work. The report made by the National Youth Administration shows that 1,651 institutions participated in the Government program of aid for college students during that year. Only 1,387 of these institutions are listed in the directory of higher educational institutions for 1937-38 published by the Office of Education, the other 264 being considered by the Office as noncollegiate in character, or of less than college grade. This bulletin contains the following: (1) Foreword; (2) General summary, 1937-38; (3) Financial aid to students in institutions in each state; (4) Financial aid to students in institutions of different types; (5) Financial aid to students in institutions under various types of control; (6) Financial aid to students in separate institutions for men and women and in co-educational institutions; (7) Financial aid to students in Negro institutions; and (8) Summary. (Contains 13 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
