Abstract:The broad question that this study addressed is the following: Among students of color, what individual attributes, along with key educational experiences, contribute to their success in securing graduate degrees? More specifically, the research asked the following questions about Students of Color (SoC) who participate in research opportunity programs: (1) What are the characteristics of students who express a desire for advanced degrees and how do these characteristics contribute to their pre and post-graduate school academic aspirations? (2) What are the differences in educational aspirations for students who have undergraduate origins in minority serving institutions (MSIs) when compared to students from traditionally white institutions (TWIs) and to what degree do aspirations and attainment depend on undergraduate origins?
