State Snapshots: Graduate Education, Research, & the Workforce

    CGS developed fact sheets with state-specific data on the scope and impact of graduate education and research in your state. They are downloadable and can be used with policymakers and other stakeholders. Featured data include: enrollments and degrees conferred from CGS' annual Graduate Enrollment and Degrees Report; federal research funding for the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and the National Endowment for the Humanities; projected workforce demands over the next decade; and CGS member institutions by Congressional district.
