SCHOLARSHIPS:
Claims Distribution Unequal

-- -

THIS WEEK'S

EVENTS

WASHINGTON-For every col-
lege scholarship awarded to a
student coming from a family with
an income below $3000, more than
four were awarded to students
from families in income brackets
above $11,000..
This is the finding of a study by
the research director of the
American Council on Education,
who suggests the colleges have
some "house cleaning" to do.
The director, Elmer b. West,
and his assistant, Charlene Gleaz-
er, analyzed scholarship records of
65 colleges representing a cross-
section of four-year institutions.
Blurred Image
They report; in the current issue
of Financial Aid News, that "the
situation is not a happy one. The
image of the colleges and univer-
sities as institutions that grant
scholarships to' the 'needy' and
'capable' is somewhat blurred."
Noting that "many considera-
tions enter into the award of a
scholarship, financial aid is not
the only one," the authors went
on:
"Nonetheless, these are appli-
cants for aid. Even when one
takes into consideration y such
things as the number of children,
o t h e r dependents, indebtedness

and so on, in high income fami-
lies, it is difficult to accept the
above figures without concern."
Break Down
Specifically, these were the
breakdowns of aid by income level
of all students who had been ac-
cepted and applied for scholar-
ships:
-Below $3000 family income:
Of 635 students who applied for
aid, 377 or 59 per cent were of-
fered it.
-Income $3000 to $4,999: Of
1,417 students who applied, 887 or
63 per cent aided.
-Income $5000 to $6,999: Of
2,583 applicants, 1,703 or 66. per
cent aided.
--Income $7000 to $8,999: Of
2,729 applicants, 1,785 or 65 per
cent aided.
-Income $9000 to $10,999: If
2,265 applicants, 1,395 or 62 per
cent aided.
-Income $11,000 to $12,999: Of
1,598 applicants, 908 or 57 per
cent were aided.
-Income above $13,000: Of
2,099 students, 789 or 38 per cent
aided.
Information Distribution
Asked if enough efforts were
being made to provide more infor-

1

mation about how lower income
families with more information
about how to go about applying
for scholarships, West replied.that
such efforts had improved but not
enough.
In the report, he writes : "Per-
haps children of low income fami-
lies do not apply to these insti-
tutions in sufficient numbers. Per-
haps they do not know about the
opportunities that exist . - .per-
haps, perhaps, perhaps.
"But of those applicants in the
below $3000 category who did ap-
ply and were accepted, 40 per cent
were not given scholarships."
West argues that colleges that
justify scholarship awards to the
rich by saying they attract stu-
dents from distant states and in-
crease the "geographical distribu-
tion" of the student body. He
said they should give more em-
phasis to "economic distribution."
