This 2012 randomized controlled trial examined the effects of performance-based scholarships on community college enrollment, credits earned, and academic achievement of 1,502 low-income, independent, adult community college students in New York City who were required to enroll in remedial courses. The students were targeted because of their elevated risk of having financial difficulties in paying for college. This is a well-implemented study, and the research meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.
