This report is the third in a series of annual studies directed to institutions granting Ph.D. degrees in science in the United States and to their medical school components. Both Ph.D. and masters students are included in the 354-institution survey. Information gathered reveals that fall 1974 graduate science enrollment in institutions of higher education granting science and engineering Ph.D.'s increased almost 6 percent over the previous year; the number of women enrolled increased by 13 percent, while men enrolled increased only 3 percent. Other segments of the study cite trends in financial support, enrollment by level and area of study, and postdoctoral study. (CP)
