For persons who attended school beyond high school and who received educational assistance during the previous calendar year, SRCEDUC reports the source(s) of educational assistance: 1) government assistance (such as a Pell Grant), except for VA educational benefits; 2) scholarships and grants; 3) other assistance (from employers, friends, or family not living in the same household); or 4) some combination of assistance from these sources. Various types of post-high school training, including attending a college, university, or business, vocational, or trade school, counted in this context. The educational assistance could cover a variety of costs, including tuition, fees, books, and living expenses while attending school.
