Post-secondary education in the United States often proves to be a major financial burden for the typical American family. The cost of a college education to some has become high in relation to the income level of many families. Some students must seek financial assistance form sources other than their family.
Historically, financial assistance to the undergraduate college student has been available from several sources. Some of these sources have included private industry, scholarships and grants through private philanthropic foundations, banks, loan companies, financial assistance programs sponsored by colleges and post-secondary institutions, state governments, private individual contributions, and the national government. This study was designed to examine one type of student financial assistance program sponsored by the national government, the National Defense Student Loan.
