Educational Policy, v11 n4 p443-78 Dec 1997
This study, which evaluates the Benjamin Banneker Scholars Program, was undertaken in response to litigation challenging the University of Maryland's right to operate a scholarship reserved exclusively for high-achieving African Americans. Using varied data sources, the study found that the Banneker scholarship program continues to be necessary as a specific remedy to eliminate the effects of racial discrimination.
