Title:The effectiveness of student aid policies: What the research tells us
Organization:College Board
Short Description:The papers in this volume assess the state of knowledge about the effectiveness of existing student aid policies and programs.
Annotation:The papers in this volume assess the state of knowledge about the effectiveness of existing student aid policies and programs. Federal and state governments, as well as colleges and universities themselves, devote considerable resources to assisting students in the payment of tuition and fees, room and board, and other costs associated with higher education. Nonetheless, significant gaps in college enrollment and success rates across income groups persist. While money is clearly only one of the problems contributing to these gaps, it is vital to use aid dollars as effectively as possible.
