Full online survey of all recipients of funding from the eleven organizations for the promotion of gifted students in 2008

Data Package Description

The data set contains the information provided by the participants in the online survey, which was conducted in October/November 2008 among all grantees of the eleven organizations for the promotion of the gifted. Different instruments were used for recipients of study grants and recipients of doctoral grants. The data from both sub-surveys were cumulated into one data set. The data set contains 9,540 cases, including 7,947 participants with a study sponsorship and 1,593 with a doctoral sponsorship. The survey covered the following topics: Study and doctoral sponsorship, educational origin, migration, sociodemographic characteristics, university access, study/doctoral characteristics, income, employment, and study-related mobility. To enable comparability of the findings with the population of all students, the questionnaire was methodologically closely aligned with the 18th Social Survey, which had been conducted in 2006.
