Document Number: 10957Moving Forward: Early Findings from the Performance-Based Scholarship Demonstration in Arizona - An experimental program at a Latino-serving community College had three goals: affordability, good academic progress, and to reward students who used student services. Each participant got $150 at program orientation, $150 midterm at a second advising session, and up to $1,000 for completing 12 or more credits with a C or better and participating in a variety of services worth a graduated level of monetary awards. Compared with the control group, the program students were more likely to complete 12 or more credits with a C or better,and were slightly more likely to stay in school.
