The National Science Foundation released the results of its survey of graduate enrollment in science and engineering. In 2006 total enrollment of first-time, full-time science and engineering (S&E) graduate students rose 6% over the 2005 level. That moderate rate of increase was fueled by a striking increase in enrollment by first-time, full-time enrollment of foreign students in S&E, which grew 16%. First-time, full-time enrollment of S&E graduate students with U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status rose by slightly more than 1%.
