  • Whether your institution is a small, expensive private college that began working with aid optimization consultants decades ago or a large, low-cost regional public university that only recently felt a need for more strategic use of aid, all universities must be sure they are getting the most from their allocation of financial aid. The challenge is that financial aid optimization is complex. It’s hard to know what strategic use of institutional funds looks like and whether or not your university is getting the most out of preciously scarce financial resources.

    This white paper is a primer on institutional grant aid, the money your university gives students to offset the cost of attendance. It will help university leaders understand the basics of aid strategy and assess whether or not their institution is deploying limited aid resources efficiently.
