Helping Minority Ph.D.’s in STEM: Something’s Working

By Lee Gardner

Samuel Attoh, dean of the Graduate School at Loyola U. Chicago, created dissertation boot camps for Ph.D. candidates and set aside grant funds specifically for students who are close to completing their degrees but who are running out of money.

Earning a Ph.D. in a STEM field is meant to be challenging, but data has shown it can be especially so for minority students. While universities have had some success in diversifying their STEM graduate ranks in recent years, completion rates for Ph.D. candidates who are African-American, Latino, Native American, or Alaska Native have lagged behind those of their white counterparts.

A report released on Tuesday by the Council of Graduate Schools offers some good news: Seven-year Ph.D. completion rates for minority students at institutions surveyed rose by 5 percent from 1996 to 2005, the most recent cohort it examined. That means that something the universities are doing is working.

The Office of Extramural Research has just released a Request for Information” (RFI) to solicit input from the research community on development of an “emeritus award.” They want to explore how senior investigators can contribute and “hand off” their skills in the form of mentorship, partnerships, skills development, etc. to junior and other investigators.

Please see a brief description of the idea in Rock Talk and the RFI here.
