The establishment of Graduate Research Supplements (GRS) reflects the continuing effort by ENG to promote increased participation of new Ph.D. students in all fields of engineering research with particular emphasis on individuals from underrepresented groups.  The long-term goal of GRS is to increase the number of persons from underrepresented groups in advanced academic and professional careers.  According to the NSF 2003 Survey of Doctorate Recipients (SDR), among teaching faculty in engineering, there are 10.3 percent women, 3.9 percent African American, 3.3 percent Hispanic, 0.4 percent American Indian/Alaskan Native and 7.1 percent persons with disabilities. With such exceedingly low levels of faculty from underrepresented groups, ENG recognizes that these underrepresented groups represent a significant untapped technical resource for the nation.
