# Rounds to zero.
1 Includes students who reported they were awarded aid, but did not specify the source of aid.
NOTE: Total includes some students whose level of study was unknown. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding and because some students receive multiple types of aid and aid from different sources. Standard errors appear in parentheses. Data include Puerto Rico. Some data have been revised from previously published figures.
