Identifying Correlations Between IDR Enrollment and Other Financial Decisions

2020 SLLI Research Grant

SLLI is awarding a grant to Daniel Collier, Dan Fitzpatrick, and Christopher Marsicano. Daniel Collier is currently a Research Fellow for The College Crisis Initiative at Davidson College. Dan Fitzpatrick currently serves as a Research and Assessment specialist for the LSA Opportunity Hub at the University of Michigan. Christopher Marsicano is an Assistant Professor of the Practice of Higher Education at Davidson College in North Carolina. Together, the scholars will use SLLI’s proprietary datasets to expand upon prior research into income-driven repayment. Specifically, they will examine the traits of students likely to participate in IDR, taking into account recent policy reforms, and examine what financial behaviors and situations IDR enrollment influences in turn. As policymakers and regulators work to address the disconnect between the protections offered under federal law and the reality in borrower outcomes, this research will shed new light on how efforts can better assist America’s most vulnerable borrowers.
