Research Statement

Dr. Bettinger's current research focuses on factors that improve students' access to and success in college. Some of these factors include the role of teacher characteristics and class sizes in college, the role of need-based financial aid, and the complexity of the college application process. Bettinger has also conducted significant research on the effects of financial incentives for students and on the effects of voucher programs on both academic and non-academic outcomes of participating students.
