A Beacon of Hope--The Exchange-of-Persons Program.
State Univ. System of Florida, Tallahassee.
The effectiveness of the Department of State's educational and cultural exchange program is studied with special reference to foreign students, leaders, and teachers who have come to the United States on grants. Extensive interviews with former grantees (1949-60) and inquiries among prominent professionals, embassy personnel, and high level officials provide the background for this report. The greatest attention is devoted to identification of program objectives and an assessment of how well they have been satisfied. Suggestions for improvement center around the foreign grantee, though the American grantee is given some consideration. Coordination of policy and approach is outlined, and there is also a short section on administration. An appendix lists the number and kind of grantees for fiscal years 1949-62 and program years 1960-62. (AF)
