Notes:  
Data reflect California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) estimates. Some categories do not sum to totals because of rounding. For 2022-23, the enacted budget includes $48.8 million in additional costs above CSAC estimates for a potential increase in students returning to college campuses. The chart excludes the associated recipients due to insufficient information on their distribution by segment, program, and award type.
