Hunter, J. Scott
This report presents the results of a survey conducted by the Office of Education of a nationwide sample of 15,710 students enrolled in programs leading to a degree beyond the bachelor's in the arts and sciences in 68 institutions. Section I presents data on the background and personal characteristics of graduate students, the type and size of the institutions they attended, and the academic fields in which they were enrolled. Section II deals with the finances of graduate education, including the academic and living expenses of graduate students, their income levels, and the sources of their incomes. Section III examines the stipend support of graduate students by institutions of higher education, the Federal government, and private foundations. Data are shown on numbers of students holding various types of stipends, the dollar value of the awards, and the characteristics of students holding stipends. The last section examines the length of time required to complete the requirements for an advanced degree. Information is provided on the number of years students have been engaged in graduate study and their opinions as to why they were delayed in completing their programs. (AF)
