This report of the findings of 14 years of research in fellowship selection techniques under the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship Program is organized primarily under research topics, though changes in panel procedures and data processing introduced either on the basis of the research findings or through less formalized experience are also briefly dealt with. Discussed are: (1) reliability of the evaluation instruments and procedures; (2) the aids used in determining quality groups; (3) the extent to which each of the predictor variables available to fellowship panels could predict doctorate attainment, and the validity of the composite of such predictors; (4) measures that best predicted on-the-job effectiveness; (5) candidate differences by field, region, and by later employer category; (6) findings on the use of multidiscipline panels, of institutional variations among the fellowship candidates, of employer categories of fellowship candidates 6 to 9 years after application, and on questionnaire returns; and (7) a context for interpretations and conclusions based on the nsf Fellowship Program.
