One section "Student Finance" (p. 30-36), discusses organization of College Scholarship Service in 1954, expansion of existing scholarship funds, agreements as to purposes and use of scholarship funds, development of loan funds, and development of school and candidate understanding. "This sketch of the developments in school finance from 1948 to 1957 and the Board's part in them is necessarily brief and inconclusive but it does serve to show that a new idea-that college opportunity should be open to all who are qualified to use it-creates new problems and that a service agency such as the Board can assume new forms and take on new tasks as part of the search for a new solution."

"This is the report of a study of the loss of talented persons from high school to college and of ways to encourage those with high-level ability, particularly those with scientific talent, to enter institutions of higher education, and to follow scientific careers. Our objectives have been to bring together relevant information from all available sources." Contains one chapter, "The Use of Scholarships to Encourage the Production of Scientists" (p. 170-183). "Scholarships continue to be the fairest means of equalizing educational opportunity. Scholarships have advantages which other types of financial aid do not possess. . . . Although the supply of scholarships available to college students continues to increase, the demand for this aid is still far greater. One hundred thousand scholarships needed immediately if we are to salvage our loss of talent from high school to college. The colleges cannot do the task alone.

"Last June a bright high school senior in a Midwestern town received scholarship offers totaling more than $25,000. . . . A top football player has a still better opportunity. . . . The college loan fund appears to be a casualty. Why should a student borrow funds when he can get his academics for nothing? . . . Four corrective measures appear to be indicated. Scholarships should be confined to need, parents who pay full tuition for their children should be honored, educational loans should replace many scholarships, and a new system of recognition devised for scholastic excellence."

Conclusions: "It is difficult to administer scholarship programs which have as one of their conditions financial need. It seems to the writers that on the basis of this study an elaborate means test... must be developed if the job is to be done effectively. . . . It seems that the whole concept of the use of financial need as an effective criterion of making scholarship awards to college students must be reappraised."
