by Suchitra Gururaj, Julian Vasquez Heilig, and Patricia Somers
This article conducts a meta-analysis of results of studies by Andrieu (1991), DeAngelis (1998), and Liseo (2005) to assess changes over time in the effects of financial aid and other
factors on graduate student persistence. These findings present policy implications for improving graduate student retention.
