Grant Type

Early Career Research Award

Description

We will explore the effect of additional grant aid for poor students on college graduation and post college earnings. We will exploit a sharp change in the generosity of grants for college students that varies with family income in a regression discontinuity framework. We will use administrative education and earnings data from Texas to explore the longer-term effects of grants. Further, we develop a sufficient statistic approach to assess whether the generosity of the grants should be increased.
