"A Proposal Designed to Disseminate Information Regarding Potential Student Financial Aids and to Identify Qualified Students," will identify qualified needy students in ten predominately rural counties of Idaho and provide information, to these students, on financial assistance for postsecondary education. These objectives will be met by enlisting high school personnel and community social workers to aid in the identification process by visiting high schools, counseling youths from a low socio-economic level on educational opportunities, and publishing a financial aids brochure to be distributed through the high schools of the State.

This is a project to analyze and evaluate the effect of student financial aid programs on the composition of entering classes in liberal arts colleges. The proposer will compile and disseminate information on techniques of successfully implementing financial aid programs designed to reach needy students from a wide variety of social and economic levels, and on college programs that have proven effective in attracting students from under-represented groups. The information will be

made available to the Office of Education, Division of Student Financial Aid, and interested colleges and universities.

Project "Women College Graduates as Agents to Increase Opportunities for Disadvantaged Youths," proposes to recruit and train college-educated women to serve as counselors in the identification of economically deprived students with the potential for education beyond high school. Activities of the women selected as counselors will include establishing personal contact with disadvantaged youths in order to direct these youths to post-secondary educational programs, organizing tutorial programs, and arranging meetings between interested students and college admissions personnel. It is anticipated that this experimental pilot project will serve as a model for similar programs in communities throughout the country.
