Annotation:Does Money Matter? II, centered around two broad research themes. The first encompasses issues of relevance to the current body of Canadian students, emphasizing areas of student finance and retention. The effects of deregulated tuition fees, as well as the commitment to enabling and ensuring equal access to post-secondary education and financial aid programs, in particular, have emerged as major points of policy concern for student financial aid providers. Considerable interest also exists in studying the effects of finances on particular student sub-populations, such as students with disabilities and Aboriginal students. The second set of issues is focused on post-secondary decision-making. How do social and cultural differences among families of various income brackets affect post-secondary education attitudes and action?
