An article on March 17 about increases to graduate student stipends incorrectly stated that all graduate student stipends increased by 3.4 percent. Actually, the recommended stipends for science and engineering departments increased by that amount. Those stipends are allowed to deviate from the recommendation announced by Dean for Graduate Education Steven R. Lerman ’72 and Associate Provost Claude R. Canizares. Any department stipends 15 percent above or 10 percent below the recommended amount must be approved by the school dean and the associate provost.
A baseball column on April 17 incorrectly stated that “as of Friday morning,” the Washington Nationals had not won a game this season. The Nationals, in fact, won their first game that Thursday evening (April 16), defeating the Philadelphia Phillies.
