Abstract

This article describes what is known from prior research about the impact of student financial aid program design, operations, and marketing on the formation of family (including parents’ and children’s) college-going aspirations, expectations, and plans, and the resulting college-going behaviors of potential students. The review focuses on the experiences of lower-income, minority, and potential first-generation college students.
