Graduate Education, Innovation and Federal Responsibility
Ehrenberg, Ronald G.
This paper, presented at the ORAU/CGS Conference on Graduate Education and American Competitiveness in Washington, discusses the causes and for the drop in American PhD students across the country, and lists the implications for that trend for American competitiveness. The author argues that the mobility of graduate students, and PhD students in particular, threatens state funding for graduate education, and that an increased federal role is now necessary.
