Student Financial Aid
The Board of Higher Education established the Task Force on Student Financial Aid to:
- Evaluate the effectiveness of current Massachusetts state financial aid programs in providing higher education access and affordability to residents of the Commonwealth;
- Identify significant areas and financial aid programs that should be modified in light of state and national trends impacting college attendance, such as rising tuition costs, reduced availability of state and federal aid; and the economic needs of the Commonwealth; and
- Recommend to the Board of Higher Education changes in policy that would promote, if implemented, access to higher education for needy students.
The report (.PDF) of the Task Force was released in October 2006.
