NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Universities have become increasingly selective in their awarding of doctoral degrees, according to a new report.
The U.S. Department of Education and the American Council on Education released a new analysis of the latest awards and their academic performance in 2018, and found that the majority of the highest-ranking institutions in the country were awarding less than 50% of their doctoral degrees.
A handful of universities were awarding more than 50%.
“While the numbers are still small, the evidence is clear: universities are increasingly limiting or removing the opportunity for doctoral degrees to those who can afford them,” said Katherine McElvoy, executive director of the American Institute of Certified Teachers.
In its annual ranking of the nation’s top 100 doctoral degree-granting institutions, the Department of Energy said that it was the most selective among the top 100.
It cited a survey conducted in 2018 by the American Association of University Professors that found that more than 40% of American college students do not hold doctoral degrees and that most of the top colleges were awarding fewer than 50.
The DOE’s rankings, which it published this week, are based on data from the Higher Education Management Association, the accrediting body that accredits colleges.
The American Council for Education, a nonprofit education nonprofit, also released its annual list of the best and worst schools in the nation.
The American Council of Trustees and Alumni, which also released the rankings, said the study found that only a handful of institutions — Harvard University, Princeton University, Yale University, and Columbia University — had awarded less than 20% of all their doctoral students.
That group included universities like Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, but only five were ranked in the top 10.
“We don’t think that this is the case,” said David J. DeBenedetti, president and CEO of the council.
“It would be really nice if universities were doing more of this.”
DeBenedett also said that the colleges were doing a poor job of identifying and recruiting the most qualified students.
He added that the universities should be investing more in research and development, which could potentially boost the number of doctoral students in their ranks.
“I think the bottom line is that the research is not being done, the recruitment is not getting better, and we need to think about how we’re going to get more doctoral students,” he said.
DeBensities and universities in general have been trying to attract more research and more students with their emphasis on graduate school.
In the past decade, the number has jumped from a handful to more than 100,000 students, according the American Institutes for Research.
The government has also provided billions of dollars to help colleges to boost enrollment, as well as other programs that provide grants to help students to complete their degrees.
But in some cases, students have not been successful in getting their degrees because of barriers, according for the American University of Beirut.
The Beirut-based university has the highest number of PhD students in the United States, but the number is much smaller than the percentage of students who hold doctoral diplomas.
The U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization reported that of the 2.7 million graduate students in Lebanon, about 2.3 million have not completed their degree, or the equivalent of one-third of the country’s total population.
The government has launched a program in the past year to help universities enroll more PhD students, which has helped enroll around 40,000 new students.
The program is called The Graduate Student Success Network, and it aims to increase the number by 25% each year for the next five years.
The University of Southern California (USC) has also been working to recruit more students.
In 2018, the university awarded more than 200,000 doctoral and master’s degrees.
The university also has a new program called the Graduate Graduate Fellowship for the Future, which allows students to work on a research project for a stipend of $30,000 for the duration of their Ph.
“In this time of crisis, universities and colleges need to continue to recruit and support those who are able to go through the rigorous academic process,” said UC President Janet Napolitano.
“As part of the global transition from global to local, UC continues to be a leading provider of international graduate education.”
The University in Chicago, which is a leading institution in the U.K. for its research and graduate school programs, announced in June that it would launch a program to attract doctoral students to the U, which includes more than 2,000 graduate students.
The Chicago Tribune reported that the university has committed $6.2 million in grants and support to help to support the development of graduate programs for students in its international programs.
“It is clear that universities are trying to compete with the global marketplace, which they are trying hard to compete against,” said Michelle Gildea, executive vice president of the
