Are Federal Dollars Bearing Fruit?: An Analysis of the College Assistance Migrant Program
This study considers 4 years of national College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) data from programs located across the United States. Findings reveal that 81% of the migrant college students served by CAMP continue to study a 2nd year. Researchers found that the success of high-achieving programs can overshadow less effective ones and, thus, recommend that future program reviews be concerned with the whole as well as the parts. The development of program evaluation criteria is recommended.
