The Academic Competitiveness (AC) and National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent (SMART) Grants were established by the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. The grants provide merit-based financial aid to certain low-income college students eligible for Federal Pell Grants and are administered by the Dept. of Education (DoE). In the first year of implementation, participation was lower than expected. This report determines: (1) factors affecting AC and SMART Grant student participation; (2) challenges colleges face in administering the grant programs; and (3) the extent to which DoE has assisted states and colleges with implementation. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.
