Dear teacher,

Moreover, the nature of grants themselves has changed. The growing prominence of merit aid among many institutions, coupled with broader definitions of who qualifies for financial aid in such a costly market, has meant that by 2000 middle-income and wealthy students typically received bigger grants from their colleges than their low-income counterparts did.

Q : I think "coupled with....market" modifies "growing" as an adverb. What do you think?

All the best,
