HEA: Javits Fellowships - 2004

CFDA Number: 84.170 - Javits Fellowships

Program Goal: To provide financial assistance to graduate students who have demonstrated superior academic ability, achievement and exceptional promise
Objective 8.1 of 1: To enable students of superior ability in the arts, humanities, and social sciences to complete their terminal degree.
Indicator 8.1.1 of 1: Graduate school completion: The percentage of Javits fellows who complete a terminal degree within 7 years.
Targets and Performance Data Assessment of Progress Sources and Data Quality
Rates of doctorate attainment by Javits fellows 7 years from enrollment
Year Actual Performance Performance Targets

Explanation: Some Javits fellows pursue programs in fields for which the terminal degree is below the doctorate level; their attainment is not accounted for. In future years the measures will reflect graduate school completion rate and average time to degree completion.  
Frequency: Annually.
Collection Period: 2003 - 2004
Data Available: December 2004
Validated By: No Formal Verification.

Limitations: The new Annual Performance Report will require grantees to report completion data on their fellows (thus obtaining completion information on both doctoral programs and those programs where the Master of Fine Arts is the terminal degree).
