About the Program

California’s economic future depends on improving college enrollment and completion. But college costs are rising and a majority of students in California’s public schools are from low-income families. PPIC researcher Hans Johnson will examine the role of grant and scholarship aid in making higher education more accessible and helping students complete college.

This research was supported with funding from the College Access Foundation of California and the Donald Bren Foundation.
