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.
