An Educational Research Internship Program for the Department of Education, State of Michigan. Final Report.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
The Michigan Department of Education received a grant of $42,950 from the U.S. Office of Education under Public Law 89-10, Title IV for the 1969-70 educational research internship program. The Bureau of Research administered the program for the department. The two interrelated purposes of the program were to contribute to the training of educational research-related personnel, and to gain meaningful assistance from the research interns in furthering the research and development activities of the department. The training program included assigning interns to practice-oriented research tasks compatible with their professional interest and/or needs and conducting bi-weekly seminars designed to assist their professional growth. During the program period, nine intern positions were created and funded and 14 graduate students at Michigan State University participated in the program. Interns worked up to 20 hours per week and at the same time continued their graduate education program. Evaluation of the program demonstrated that the program was successful and contributed meaningfully to the two objectives. Four research interns from the 1969-70 program period are now employed as full-time personnel in the Department of Education. The program was worthwhile and effective in meeting both the needs of the interns and of the department. (Author/MBM)
