Minnesota State Grant Statistics Over Time. 2003 Edition.
Minnesota Higher Education Services Office
This report contains data on the number and dollar amounts of Minnesota State Grants received by Minnesota undergraduates for Fiscal Years 1978 through 2003. Combined federal Pell and State Grant awards are also reported. The report includes a table showing the parameters used in the State Grant Program from Fiscal Year 1984 through 2003. The Design for Shared Responsibility policy became effective in Fiscal Year 1984. The Design for Shared Responsibility states that paying for college is a shared responsibility among students, families and taxpayers. It is the basis for the State Grant Program. The report also includes information on family status for 1995 through 2003. Each category of family has its ability to pay assessed differently: (1) dependent students (usually students less than 24 years old who were not married and not supporting their own children); (2) married independent students with children; (3) unmarried independent students with children; (4) married independent students without children; and (5) single independent students (without children). The data in this report summarize information in prior annual reports such as the Minnesota State Grant Program End of Year Statistics. The statistics for Minnesota State Grants and Combined Federal Pell and Minnesota State Grants were derived for the end of year reports using data collected for the Minnesota State Grant Program. The values of All Federal Pell plus Minnesota State Grants were collected as part of the biennial survey of campus financial aid offices. The data in this report are based on the Minnesota State Grant research data file which is compiled in the autumn of each year, following the end of the previous fiscal year on June 30. These data may differ slightly from other documents published by the Minnesota Higher Education Services Office which are based on data captured at different dates.
