MPRC Seminar: Loans for Higher Education: Does the Dream Come True?

Speaker: Sergio Urzua, Assistant Professor of Economics, University of Maryland About the Talk: This paper analyzes the impact of student loans for higher education on enrollment, dropout decisions, and adult earnings. Specifically, we investigate the State Guaranteed Loan (SGL) program, the largest source of public funding for higher education in Chile. Using longitudinal data from administrative records, we estimate a sequential schooling decision model and compute several treatment effects of interest. We show that the program increases enrollment and reduces dropout rates. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 26, 2014
