Title: Trends in Pell Grant Receipt and the Characteristics of Pell Grant Recipients: Selected Years, 2003–04 to 2015–16
Description: These tables present data from four administrations of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (2003–04, 2007–08, 2011–12, and 2015–16) on the percentage of undergraduates who received a Pell Grant and the average amount they received. Data are also presented on the average percentage ratios of Pell Grant amount, grant aid, and total aid to the total price of attendance among Pell Grant recipients, and the percentages of Pell Grant recipients who took out student loans or received state or institutional grants, and the average amounts received from these sources. These data are presented by selected student and enrollment characteristics, such as age, sex, race/ethnicity, dependency status, family income, attendance status, class level, degree program, employment status, parents’ education, and by control and level of institution attended.
