Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: January 2006
Program data are supplied by institutions, which certify the accuracy of the data.
 
Explanation: FY 2003 data was used to establish the baseline. Efficiency data are determined by calculating the total dollars allocated to the cohorts divided by the total number of Javits Fellows receiving a terminal degree during this same time frame. The baseline was calculated using appropriation amounts for fiscal years 1998 through 2001, and school year data for 1998-99 through 2001-02. Over time, the uses for this efficiency measure may include examining the cost per successful outcome for the Javits Program as compared with other comparable programs.
