Abstract In the U.S. there are large di erences across States in the extent to which college education is subsidized, and there are also large di erences across States in the proportion of college graduates in the labor force. State subsidies are apparently motivated in part by the perceived benets of having a more educated workforce. The paper uses the migration model of Kennan and Walker (2009) to analyze how geographical variation in college education subsidies a ects the migration decisions of college graduates. The model is estimated using NLSY data, and used the quantify the sensitivity of migration decisions to di erences in expected net lifetime income. The estimates suggest that State subsidies have little e ect on the geographical distribution of college graduates. 1
