A Survey of Programs for Disadvantaged Students in Graduate Schools.
Parry, Mary Ellen
The purpose of this study is to obtain information concerning procedures and programs established for disadvantaged graduate students. The means used for gathering this information was a 3-part questionnaire which was sent to the deans of the 287 graduate schools belonging to the Council of Graduate Schools in the U.S. The first section of the questionnaire deals with recruitment, admission requirements, remedial services, and financial aid. The second section is concerned with when the procedures for disadvantaged students were first established, whether or not changes have been made or are planned for the future, and the number of disadvantaged students enrolled. The third section of the questionnaire asks for an evaluation of student achievement. The results of this survey indicate that many graduate schools have at least some policies and procedures for students from deprived circumstances. The number of graduate schools involved in this important facet of graduate education has been increasing during the last several years, and the number of disadvantaged students in the programs, while still rather low, is also increasing.
