Covering all forms of financial assistance to studentsagifts, loans, and workathis first comprehensive book on the subject takes a hard look at what is going on in American colleges and universities. The twenty-eight original essays, written for the volume, are especially timely for two reasons: first, institutions of higher education, both public and private, have a heightened interest in institutional finanAscial support from all sources, including that available from student tuition (and thus indirectly from student financial-aid sources); and second, state and federal agencies, especially Congress, are reviewAsing and revising the aid programs which they sponsor (a matter of grave concern to institutions which depend on such funds for a substantial portion of their incomes). Divided into five parts, the work covAsers the philosophy and history of finanAscial aid to students in American univerAssities and colleges, the various programs currently in force, the organization and administration of student financial assisAstance, professional careers open to adAsvisors, counselors, and administrators, and an overview summing up the ideas and recommendations of the distinguished proAsfessionals who have contributed to the volume. Though addressed primarily to adminAsistrators and to students of higher educaAstion, the book should be read by policy-makersaby college and university presidents and deans, by trustees, and by state and federal legislators.See American College Testing Program; Need analysis Administration of the student support office: staff training, 217-18, 225; counseling function, 221 ; business function, 222, 224; ...
