Journal of the International Society for Teacher Education, v21 n1 p55-66 2017
With increasing access to Brazilian higher education comes increasing dropout rates in both licentiate and non-licentiate undergraduate programs. This paper reports on a comparative study of licentiate and non-licentiate undergraduate programs that enrolled students who either had or did not have a University Program for All (ProUni) scholarship. The study, conducted in 2014, analysed data on freshmen enrolled in 2005 at a non-profit higher education institution (HEI) in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The study used quantitative comparative methods including descriptive and inferential statistics to analyse the data. Results indicated that graduates with a ProUni scholarship had a higher graduation rate and decreased dropout rate in both licentiate and non-licentiate degrees, p <0.0001.
