Abstract: This study investigates who received Pell Grants and Stafford Loans in four year colleges in 1986-87 and 1989-90 to see if there were differences in the likelihood of receiving these types of aid based on the year, gender, race, dependency status, institutional control, level of institution, family income, and home address. The study analyzed data collected in the National Postsecondary Student Aid Studies conducted by the National Center for Educational Statistics in 1986-87 and 1989-90. The results are based on the responses of a sample of 51,649 students who attended four-year colleges in fall, 1986 and fall, 1989. Data were analyzed using logistic regression procedures. Odds ratios were used to estimate the differences in the likelihood of receiving aid as a function of the independent variables noted above.
