Summary

Although a positive argument can be made for subsidizing college students, the existing system is chaotic and inconsistent. It is desirable therefore, to develop a reasonable and consistent plan for college scholarships. This plan would employ cost-benefit and other techniques of economic analysis to attain national policy objectives. In this plan, the social value of a college education for various groups of high school graduates would be measured through various means by the subsidizing agency and the private value by the financial sacrifice the potential students and their families are willing to make. Through economic and mathematical analysis, these two factors would be utilized to obtain a maximum social gain from a national college student subsidy budget. (Author/DS)
