Undergraduate Financial Aid in the United States


Judith Scott-Clayton is Associate Professor of Economics and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, where she teaches courses on labor economics and causal inference. She is also a Faculty Research Fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research, a Nonresident Senior Fellow of the Brookings Institution, and a Senior Research Associate at the Community College Research Center. Scott-Clayton’s research lies at the intersection of labor economics and higher education, with a particular focus on financial aid policy, public institutions, and post-college outcomes. Her work crosses disciplinary boundaries and has been published in economics, education, and policy journals. Scott-Clayton has testified twice before the U.S. Senate as an expert on financial aid policy and research, has written for the New York Times Economix and Upshot blogs, and actively participates in higher education policy discussions at the state and federal level. She holds a B.A. from Wellesley College and a Ph.D. in Public Policy from Harvard University.
