SANCHEZ VARGAS, Armando; VILLARESPE REYES, Verónica  and  NARANJO CARBAJAL, Anadeli. Scholarships and their impact on the perception of grade averages: Evidence from Mexico City. Prob. Des [online]. 2020, vol.51, n.201, pp.111-132.  Epub Nov 09, 2020. ISSN 0301-7036.

This paper presents the results of the impact that a Scholarship Program in Mexico City has on perceptions that families have of their children’s grade averages. The study uses a new database collected for the purpose of evaluating this conditional cash transfer program, which contains information for a random sample of a treatment group and control group. Through linear and ordered probit regression models, it was found that participation in the Scholarship Program increased the perception of high grade averages by 18.1%, and reduced 11.3 and 6.7% the perception of mid and low range grade averages, respectively.

Keywords : education; education policy; Scholarship Programs; perception of grade averages; probit econometric model.
