Project 1000: Recruiting, Admitting, and Graduating an Additional 1000 U.S. Hispanic Graduate Students. Student Information Booklet.
Keller, Gary D.; Sullivan, Michael J.
Project 1000 is a program to help United States citizens or permanent residents of the United States of Hispanic ethnic origin to make application for graduate study in those fields and disciplines where the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) normally is used to help assess an applicant's admission potential (i.e., the arts and sciences generally and most fields of education but not medicine, business, law, and other fields where tests other than the GRE are used). Hispanic American students submit a Project 1000 application, free of charge, for admission to and financial aid from selected graduate schools. Project 1000 staff consult with the student on selecting graduate programs, completing the application, and other matters. This booklet describes the project's functioning, including its eligibility requirements. It provides information about applying for financial aid and about the use of standardized tests (particularly the GRE) with Hispanic students. Instructions are provided for completing the Project 1000 application for graduate study and financial support in a way that will enhance the applicant's qualifications and personal qualities. Descriptions are offered of the 50 graduate schools participating in Project 1000. Includes 13 references. (JDD)
