Wellesley College Graduates and Research: Wellesley College is a highly competitive, undergraduate women's college with a long-standing commitment to excellence in research. According to NSF's Survey of Earned Doctorates (2017), Wellesley College is among the top 10 institutions within its Carnegie classification (Baccaulareate Colleges) for graduates going on to earn research doctorates. Additionally, NSF's survey of Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering (2019), ranks Wellesley College among the top 50 institutions in the US (regardless of Carnegie Classification) for female graduates going on to earn doctoral degrees. This success stems largely from Wellesley's institutional commitment to superb research facilities, cutting-edge instrumentation, a high level of extramurally funded faculty research, and active student participation throughout the research program.
