When a doctoral program in education introduced a comprehensive funding package that covered tuition, it led to an increase in the number of applicants.

That’s according to a new study published in AERA Open, a peer-reviewed, open-access journal of the American Educational Research Association. We did the study with co-authors Chris Bennett, Kenny Nienhusser and Milagros Castillo-Montoya.
