Document Number: 10977Aid Like a Paycheck: Incremental Aid to Promote Student Success - A small-scale program that disburses financial aid to students every other week-after tuition and fees are paid has gone through a pilot stage and could be the subject of a large-scale evaluation by MDRC. The potential for Aid Like a Paycheck is that it could help students' success in college, but also save money at the federal, state and private level by ensuring that aid is distributed while students maintain their enrollment. Because it doesn't involve new funding, the belief is Aid Like a Paycheck could be scaled up. (Michelle Ware, Evan Weissman and Drew McDermott, MDRC, September 2013)...
