Abstract: This paper empirically explores the effect of the Universal Child Allowance "a conditional Cash Transfer Program recently launched in Argentina" on backwardness in school. Specifically, we evaluate whether children enrolled in the program closed their education gap, differentiating between children and adolescents. Using propensity score as a prelude to the estimation of regression, we found preliminary evidence that the government subsidy affects primary and secondary students differently. The results are robust to different uses of the different samples and comparison samples observation.
