Parental Plans and Actions to Finance Higher Education.
Miller, Richard A.
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v26 n1 p45-47 Win 1996
Analysis of data from National Education Longitudinal Study found that a third of parents of high school seniors had not begun preparing for college costs and a quarter had begun only recently. Most did not expect savings to cover costs and had investigated financial aid but relatively few had applied. Grants, scholarships, and fellowships were preferred over work and loans. (MSE)
