Sources of Grant Aid for First-Time Undergraduate Students at TICUA Member Institutions

Over the last decade TICUA member institutions have increased the amount of grant aid available to their first-time undergraduate students, while, particularly in recent years, the aid available to these students from the State and federal governments has remained fairly stable. In 2012-2013 Tennessee's Independent Colleges provided over 3 times more aid to first-time, first-year students than the State and federal government.
