Modes of Financial Support in the Graduate Education of Science and Engineering Doctorate Recipients. Topical Report.
Morgan, Mark; Burrelli, Joan; Rapoport, Alan
This report examines the matrix of support patterns of science and engineering doctorates in 1995, showing the distribution of various modes of support to individuals. The data provided in this report are intended to be a source of contextual and background information for those interested in examining the various types of graduate support modes and assessing the impacts of support modes on graduate education outcomes. The data in this study show the complexity of support mechanisms and thus the limitations of analyses of the effects of only a single mode of support. The document includes an executive summary, an introduction with background explanations, analysis of the numbers of support modes used, analysis of the prevalence and combinations of support modes, concluding remarks, and technical notes. (Contains 14 references.) (WRM)
