There is no question that doctorate education at US universities has drawn an increasing number of students from around the world in recent decades. The growth of foreign students in US doctorate education may produce a wide range of benefits and costs for universities. This chapter describes the trends in doctorate attainment among foreign students at US universities, and distinguishes significant trends by country of origin and type of US doctorate program. The analysis demonstrates substantial shifts in country of origin over the last three decades among doctorate students, with the growth in foreign students coming largely from Asian countries, including China and India. Evidence presented in the chapter suggests that the expansion of foreign doctorate attainment in the sciences—particularly outside of economics—at US universities has been largely aligned with the research function at universities. The availability of research funding has been significant in supporting the increased demand among foreign doctorate students.
