Student Financial Aid

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. If you are a student, the costs of education can feel particularly overwhelming. But with proper financial planning, students are able to determine how much money they’ll need for tuition, text books, class supplies, as well as monthly expenditures such as rent and food. Financial aid is available to students in Canada in various forms, including student loans, grants, and scholarships. Financial experts are available to help offer students guidance and information on how to plan for and pay for post-secondary education. Do you have questions about your own, or your child’s current financial situation or education debt-load? Would you like to speak with a financial expert for yourself, a friend or loved one? Are you looking for resources within your community to help you manage your overall financial picture? Kinjunxion is here to help with sources of support and information.

Aiding Students, Buying Students

Financial Aid in America

Wilkinson traces the history of undergraduate financial aid at American colleges and universities; the origins, purposes, and impacts of merit- and need-based aid; the federal government's role; the evolution of elite private institutions; and the current climate and concerns. The concluding chapter lays out how these factors, combined with increasing costs of attending college, impact low-income minority students and how reforms on campuses and in Washington, DC, can better serve higher education and the more disadvantaged students.

Quality in Student Financial Aid Programs

A New Approach

Federal financial aid for postsecondary education students involves both large expenditures and a complex distribution system. The accuracy of the needs-based award process and the system of accountability required of the 8,000 institutional participants are the focus of this book. It assesses the current measures of system quality and possible alternatives, such as a total quality management approach. The analysis covers steps to eliminate sources of error--by reducing the complexity of the application form, for example. The volume discusses the potential for a risk-based approach for verification of applicant-supplied information and for audit and program reviews of institutions. This examination of the interrelationships among the aid award and quality control activities will be of interest to anyone searching for a more efficient aid system. The book can also serve as a case study for other government agencies seeking to examine operations using modern quality management principles.
