A six-year study of Gates Millennium Scholarship Program applicants suggests that black students who major in "high-paying fields" tend to make less money immediately after graduating college than Asian-American and Hispanic-American students who major in the same fields, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education. The study, conducted by the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center, monitored approximately 350 students from their high school graduations in the spring of 2000 until 2006.
