Excerpt: “State and federal agencies invested $51.5 billion in grant aid for college students in 2016-17, and we know from decades of research that financial aid systems can help traditional students access or complete college. We know much less about how aid interacts with non-traditional students, however, and ours is the first study we know of to examine the take-up and effects of financial aid for students attending non-degree technical colleges.”
