SUMMARY:
 

Dropout in higher education is a matter of global interest and, to reduce it, several policies were created to encourage students to stay in universities. In Brazil, the Permanence Scholarship Program (PSP) is one of the main student assistance policies, aiming to prevent low-income students from dropping out of university. This work presents three essays about evaluation for student retention policies and its application in the PSP. The first essay aimed to identify patterns of evaluation of student retention policies in higher education through a systematic literature review, selecting 39 documents from Scopus, Sage Journals, Web of Science, Google academic, and CAPES Periodicals. Regarding the forms of evaluation, the results indicated the predominance of analyzes on the effects of policies on dropout, but some works evaluated the performance and time to graduation of students. The studies were mostly directed to public university environments, which indicates a scarcity of scientific production in private educational institutions. As for the formats of permanence policies, the literature pointed out four types of aid with different natures: financial, assistance, based on academic merit, and by criteria of need/vulnerability of students. The research proposed threefold model for evaluation of permanence policies, considering permanence, performance, and time until graduation. The second essay analyzes the effects of PSP for students from private higher education institutions on the time of completion and rate of degree obtention. Survival analysis associated with propensity score matching was used, based on data from the higher education census between 2010 and 2017. Students included in the program, from the 4th year onwards, are at lower risk of evasion, have greater probability of graduation, and complete the studies in less time than those not in the program, even if it does not happen within the regulatory deadline. Finally, the third essay proposes to evaluate the PSP from two perspectives: effects on dropout and academic performance of the students covered. Databases of higher education censuses from 2010 to 2017 and ENADE tests from 2017 to 2019 were used. The application of the difference-in-differences model with multiple time periods showed that the PSP has reducing effects on dropout and that this effect is greater according to the time students are exposed to the scholarship. Also, insertion in the program showed a positive correlation with better performance of students in ENADE, annual reading volume and weekly hours of study
