Abstract

In 1999-2000, approximately 2.7 million students were enrolled in graduate and first-professional programs in colleges and universities in the United States. Using data from the 1999-2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:2000), this report profiles students in various degree programs and examines how they paid for their education, with particular attention on their use of teaching and research assistantships. In addition, the report contains a compendium of tables providing detailed data on student and enrollment characteristics, types of financial aid, and employment
