NSF fellowships stipends: $27,500 (F2003); $30,000 (F2004); and . . . NIH, other agencies will follow suit. Funding for masters education is miniscule compared to that for Ph.D. Tuition continues to rise at well above CPI; remissions/waivers needed. Reauthorization if HEA: an opportunity to increase priority of graduate education. Graduate Education Issues: International issues: post-9/11 SEVIS International Visitors Restrictions on research areas/materials

Bologa Accord EU Higher Education 3 + 2 proposed as common structure: 3 yrs equivalent to U.S. B.S. (?) + 2 yrs = equivalent of US M.S. (?) Graduate Education Issues: Completion/Attrition and ttd Doctoral completion rate (50% lore); varies widely; most agree is too low. Attrition rates still significant in years 2, 3, 4, of doctoral programs. Time to degree continues to increase. Similar problems, less extent, in masters programs. Graduate Education Issues: Diversity/Participation/access

Participation of underrepresented groups increasing, but slowly; still low. Strategies need to reflect new realities of court decisions, public policy. Curricula should reflect cultural, historical, societal, global diversity. Graduate Education Issues: Responsible Conduct of Research Ethical issues Human/Animal research subjects; informed consent Intellectual property issues Industry/university interactions Commercialization of research results Graduate Education Issues: Mismatch: education/employers

PFF balanced instruction in T,R,S, skills, faculty roles/responsibilities. PFP balanced instruction in R, skills, teamwork, non-academic work environments, project management. Professional Masters core MS, skills, teamwork, non-academic internship; business principles.
