  1. Notes: Each column shows results from interacting treatment effect with the variable listed at the top of the column. All regressions also control for randomization strata dummies, while the last column also controls for marriage at baseline. Huber-White standard errors in parentheses, clustered at the student level
  2. *, **, and *** indicate significance at the 10, 5, and 1 % levels, respectively
