The Impact of Student Earnings in Offsetting "Unmet Need."
Stampen, Jacob O.; And Others
Economics of Education Review, v7 n1 p113-26 1988
Student financial aid grants often fall short of amounts suggested by standard needs analysis systems, creating "unmet need," which some students try to offset with employment earnings. This study indicates that employed aid recipients can often offset unmet need, while nonworking recipients are at a financial disadvantage. Includes five tables, three notes, and 20 references. (MLH)
