The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation recently engaged in a strategic planning process, out of which the Board of Directors determined that the Foundation’s primary objective shall be focused on college access and success for exceptional students with financial need. Concurrently, it determined that greater progress could be made toward this objective with more concentrated focus of resources. As a result, the Board of Directors decided to reduce the number of scholarships the Foundation offers by ending two graduate scholarship programs – the Graduate Arts Award and the Dissertation Fellowship. The last cohort for each program was selected in the spring 2014.
The type of quantitative research question that you use in your dissertation (., descriptive, comparative and/or relationship) needs to be reflected in the way that you write out the research question; that is, the word choice and phrasing that you use when constructing a research question tells the reader whether it is a descriptive, comparative or relationship-based research question. Therefore, in order to know how to structure your quantitative research question, you need to start by selecting the type of quantitative research question you are trying to create: descriptive, comparative and/or relationship.
