Funds requested for fiscal year 1967 will provide support for approximately 35,000 students. The program will eventually phase out as the Neighborhood Youth Corps program gradually assumes responsibility.

Residential vocational schoolsGrants, subsidies, and contributions 1966 estimate--1967 estimate-

$3,500,000 Increase--

3,500,000 Funds are requested in the amount of $3,500,000 to implement the authorization contained in the Vocational Education Act of 1963 (section 14) which permits the Commissioner of Education to make grants for residential vocational schools. These funds will permit grants for initial planning and architectural fees for seren residential vocational schools. They will provide opportunities for effective experimental, demonstration and evaluation of the residential school concept. The schools will be located in the following locations: Atlanta, Ga.; Okmulgee, Okla. ; Philadelphia, Pa.; St. Louis, Mo.; San Diego, Calif.; Ashland, Ky.; Washington, D.C.

[blocks in formation]

At a time when less than one-half of our Nation's youth go to college from secondary schools, virtually all student loan guarantee programs are geared to the collegebound students. While a college education is a valuable asset, it is neither feasible nor desirable that all students pursue that form of postsecondary school training. There are many students who prefer to continue their education at a vocational school; usually these students know exactly the careers they wish to enter. It is in the national interest that assistance be provided to these students to help them achieve their aspirations and to provide the Nation's work force wih more vocationally and technically trained persons which it so vitally needs. Only one State -New York-currently has a loan guarantee program comprehensive enough to include students in the vocational school category.

The National Vocational Student Loan Insurance Act of 1965 authorizes the appropriation of funds to encourage States and nonprofit private institutions and organizations to establish adequate loan insurance programs for students who wish to attend postsecondary, business, trade, technical, and other vocational schools, It also authorizes a Federal loan insurance fund for students who do not have reasonable access to a State or private nonprofit program of loan insurance.

The guaranteed loan program makes it possible for banks and other commercial sources of credit to make large amounts of credit available to students while exercising prudence in safeguarding funds entrusted to them. The program offers maximum encouragement and assistance to States to establish State loan insurance programs, and if a State is unable to do this, offers a similar assistance to nonprofit institutions and organizations.

The act also provides that the Federal Government pay the total amount of interest on loans to qualified students (those whose family income is less than an adjusted $15,000) while they are pursuing a course of study and 3 percentage points of the interest thereafter. Families with adjusted incomes over $15,000 may take advantage of the guaranteed loans but must assume all interest payments.

A supplemental appropriation of $1 million will be requested in 1966 to implement the program, and the 1967 requirements are estimated at $1,800,000.

ADVANCES FOR RESERVE FUNDS

These funds are to be used over a 3-year period for the establishment and strengthening of State and private nonprofit reserve funds. The act authorizes $1,875,000 for making advances to State and nonprofit student loan insurance programs; $850,000 of this authorization is being requested in a fiscal year 1966 supplemental. The balance of the authorization, $1,025,000, is requested for fiscal year 1967.

INTEREST PAYMENTS ON INSURED LOANS

Subsidization of interest payments on insured loans is estimated to cost $775,000 for fiscal year 1967, or an increase of $675,000 over the 1966 request of $100,000. Payments will be made for approximately 55,000 students in 1967, compared to 15,000 in 1966.

INSURANCE FUND

An appropriation of $50,000 is being requested, in a fiscal year 1966 supplemental appropriation, to establish the Federal loan insurance fund for those students without access to a State or private nonprofit program. A charge of one-fourth of 1 percent will be made to all lending agencies to which insurance certificates are issued. This charge, together with the initial appropriation of $50,000 is believed to be sufficient to cover any defaults in fiscal year 1966. This amount will be transferred in 1967 to an account entitled the "Student Loan Insurance Fund" which will be established by merging the student loan insurance fund created by section 431 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and the vocational student loan insurance fund created by section 138 of the Vocational Student Loan Insurance Act of 1965.
