🚨 New working paper on financial aid for college! 🚨


A quick summary in this #thread...
This paper looks at two-year college students who have the greatest financial need, and finds that a grant of around $1,000 increased rates of degree completion over the following three years by about 1-2 percentage points, from a baseline of 19% completion.
The research design is a regression discontinuity using a cutoff in the date of filing the FAFSA. Wisconsin allocates aid first-come first-served among financially eligible applicants. More details on this and supplementary strategies, in the paper.
