Title:  Trends in the Receipt of Pell Grants: Selected Years, 1995–96 to 2007–08
Description: Using data from the 1995–96, 1999–2000, 2003–04, and 2007–08 administrations of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study, these tables focus on trends in the receipt of federal Pell Grants and among Pell Grant recipients. Data include the percentages of Pell Grant recipients and the average Pell Grant received each survey year. Also shown are the percentages of Pell Grant recipients who received state grants or institutional grants, or took out student loans, and the average amounts received from these sources. The average ratio of the Pell Grant to the total cost of attendance during these selected years is included as well. Data are presented by a number of demographic and enrollment characteristics, including age, sex, race/ethnicity, dependency status, family income, attendance status, grade level, employment status, parents’ education, and type of institution attended.
