Title:The impact of bursaries: Debt and student persistence in post-secondary education
Organization:Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation
Short Description:This research note examines information from three different reports, published through the Millennium Research Series, on the impact of student financial assistance on post-secondary persistence and success.
Annotation:There is convincing empirical evidence that qualified students can be driven to abandon post-secondary education if their debt load is too high. This inevitably has an impact on a country’s ability to compete effectively in a knowledge-based global marketplace. This research note examines information from three different reports, published through the Millennium Research Series, on the impact of student financial assistance on post-secondary persistence and success.
