Scientific productivity and economic growth have been largely used to assess the effect of doctorate education policy. From a different perspective, we analyze the expansion of doctorate scholarships in Chile from the standpoint of equity with social. During the last decade Chile has invested the largest amount of resources in graduate education. Upon conducting a case study emphasizing the qualitative component, results show that the knowledge economy paradigm dominates the rationale of the process of expansion of doctorate scholarships in Chile, while equity is not defined nor mentioned with the exception of one single initiative and some isolated criteria.
