In this paper, the authors examine grant-aid programs in 11 states in varying degrees of detail. The authors demonstrate how different policy goals and objectives have led to different approaches to financial aid, with likely differences in the consequences for student participation and success. Those considering new ventures into the financial aid arena or those thinking in new ways about their current systems can learn much from the experiences of these states.
