SCSF initially committed to making the scholarships available for a period of three years.
SCSF asked an independent research team to conduct an experimental evaluation of the impact of the intervention on student achievement and other outcomes, such as school climate and school quality, as reported by the students' parents or other guardians.
In this paper, we extend the original evaluation of the SCSF program by estimating impacts of the offer of a voucher on college enrollment.
We used the names and dates of birth of SCSF scholarship applicants, collected at eligibility verification sessions, to match them to NSC records.
We are extremely appreciative of the continued support of our limited partners and remain enthusiastic about investment opportunities for SCSF
Because SCSF awarded scholarships by means of a lottery, it was possible to evaluate the pilot program using a scientific method regularly employed in medical research, the randomized field trial (RFT).
Fortunately, SCSF was willing to permit a rigorous, independent evaluation of its pilot program, and my colleagues and I were able to obtain funds for the evaluation from a broad network of private foundations.
The firm responsible for the evaluation, Mathematica Policy Research, administered the lottery in order to leave no doubt about its integrity; SCSF announced the winners.
