For Fans of State Merit Scholarships, a Cautionary Tale from Louisiana.
Selingo, Jeffrey
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n32 pA36-A38 Apr 16 1999
Louisiana's program of state merit scholarships, inspired by Georgia's HOPE Scholarship program, is over budget in its first year because lawmakers pushed to expand eligibility and data for estimating costs was inadequate. Critics find such programs often provide aid to families with little financial need. The program pays full tuition at state institutions or partial tuition at private colleges. (MSE)
