Is Traditional College Financial Aid Too Little, Too Late? Early Results from a Randomized Trial of a 'Promise' Scholarship for Low-Income Students
Join us as Dr. Douglas Harris of Tulane University presents his research at a lunchtime colloquium at the LBJ School of Public Affairs on Tuesday, October 16th. Dr. Harris plans to discuss:
- the rationale for a "promise" college scholarship program (e.g. the rising costs of college)
- how the design of the demonstration program emerged
- his study's methodological issues (e.g. conducting a randomized control trial) and
- highlights of what his research is revealing so far.
Douglas N. Harris is Associate Professor of Economics and University Endowed Chair in Public Education at Tulane University. His research explores how students’ educational outcomes are influenced by school choice, standards, teacher evaluation, test-based accountability, college financial aid, and college access programs. A former school board member, his research marries theory and rigorous research with the practical realities of schooling.
Dr. Harris has advised eight state departments of education, elected officials at all levels of government, and groups such as the National Academy of Sciences, National Council of State Legislatures, National Governors Association, and National School Boards Association. His work is frequently cited in the national media, including CNN, Education Week, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.
The colloquium is free and open to the public, but registration is requested for catering purposes. Light refreshments will be served.
Paid parking is available in the Manor Garage to the south of Sid Richardson Hall ($6 for 1-2 hours). A number of Capital Metro bus routes have stops on streets adjacent to the LBJ School, and bicycle racks are available on the east side of the building.
Please contact Julie Montgomery, CHASP Senior Program Coordinator, with any questions.
