The Impact of Pell Grant Eligibility on Community College Students' Financial Aid Packages, Labor Supply, and Academic Outcomes

Date and Time: November 13, 2015 10:00–11:30 AM
Location: Miami, FL
Venue: Hyatt Regency | Riverfront South/Central

This poster session examined two research questions for community college students:

  1. How does Pell eligibility interact with other financial aid packages?
  2. What is the effect of Pell eligibility on student labor supply and academic outcomes?

Using administrative data on entrants at more than 20 community colleges in one state, the research examined post-enrollment outcomes for students just above and below the expected family contribution (EFC) cutoff for receiving a Pell Grant.
