This report describes: (1) the size and change in value of endowments over the last 20 years; (2) the extent and manner to which endowment funds are restricted for financial aid and other purposes; and (3) institutions' distribution of endowment assets. The author selected 10 colleges and univ. for case studies. The case-study instit
