New York State's Graduate Students: Educational Costs and Finances.
New York State Univ. System, Albany.
A random sample of 5,010 master's degree and 4,930 doctoral students was surveyed at 29 New York state public and independent higher education institutions. A questionnaire was administered, and a usable return rate of 42.6 percent was achieved for independent colleges, 33.4 percent for the State University campuses, and 35.3 percent for the City University of New York campuses. The research objectives and results reported fall into four broad categories: (1) to determine the demographic characteristics of graduate students with particular emphasis on the intentions and income expectations of the students upon graduation; (2) to determine the total cost of attendance; (3) to determine the ability of graduate students to finance costs from their current income and that of their families; and (4) to determine the financial awards available to graduate students. Another section of the report considers the potential winners of a proposed New York state fellowship program, and two final sections provide an overview of male and female and minority graduate students. Data are presented in tabular form, with some narration. (Author/MSE)
