Science, engineering, and health (SEH) doctorates awarded by U.S. institutions to minorities (Asians, blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians/Alaska Natives) have been increasing in number and as a percentage over the past two decades. Nevertheless, both minority doctorate numbers and minority faculty numbers remain low, especially in the leading research institutions. Data on SEH doctorate recipients show that blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians/Alaska Natives, as a group, earned about 3,300 SEH doctorates from U.S. universities in 2008, 9% of all SEH doctorates (table 1). Asians earned about 10,900 SEH doctorates in 2008, 31% of all SEH doctorates, most of which (81%) were earned by temporary visa holders.
