Survey of Earned Doctorates

The Survey of Earned Doctorates began in 1958 as an annual survey and has evolved as the definitive source of information on the nation's new research doctorates. 

Sponsors are the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Education, National Endowment for the Humanities, USDA, and NASA.

Data collected are shared with colleges and universities across the United States to assist in decisions about funding and advocating for graduate education. The information is confidential; none of the data will personally identify a respondent.

Ohio State doctoral candidates may complete the survey any time during their semester of graduation.

To complete the survey

Questions may be directed to Tim Watson, director of Graduation Services, (614) 247-7292.
