A survey of 269 undergraduate students at the University of Manitoba found that students' perceptions of their social capital resources had direct and indirect effects on their developing self-concepts and their educational achievement. Students' perceptions of support, particularly peer support, were an important resource, positively related to academic self-concept and grades. (Contains 33 references.) (Author/SV)
