Project 12: Subject-Area Incentives

Judith Scott-Clayton–CCRC

In this analysis of administrative data from Florida and North Carolina, the researchers study the impacts of two major new programs intended to encourage students to pursue educational and career paths in high-need fields. The researchers will utilize quasi-experimental approaches, including both regression discontinuity and interrupted-time-series designs, to estimate the effects of these programs. An important aspect of this study will be an examination of program take-up rates, given the concern that students may not be aware of all relevant federal-level policies. These data include information determining program eligibility, actual program participation, and academic and labor market outcomes for all cohorts up to two years following college completion.
