A State-Supported, Merit-Based Scholarship Program that Works
Ackerman, Robert; Young, Martha; Young, Rodney
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v35 n3 p21-34 2005
The Millennium Scholarship Program, which provides merit-based scholarships for Nevada's students, is designed to increase college participation, college persistence, and the number of in-state students enrolling in state institutions of higher education (IHEs). Data gathered over the past five years reflect that Nevada's Millennium Scholarship Program has successfully met its goals. Further, it has improved student quality in IHEs, as is evident by a lower percentage of students taking college remedial courses. A major focus of this study is to demonstrate how Nevada's merit-based scholarship program may serve as a model for other states attempting to improve college participation. (Contains 6 tables and 1 figure.)
