Cooperative Research Projects. A Seven-Year Summary, July 1, 1956-June 30, 1963.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The Cooperative Research Program (CRP) was organized in 1956 by the U.S. Office of Education. This 7-year program developed new knowledge about major educational problems and devised new applications of existing knowledge for solving problems. The average contribution of the Federal Government to each project was $50,000 for a 2-year project or $25,000 per year. The amount contributed by colleges, universities and state departments of education varied widely but was used for services, facilities and differential overhead. During the first 4 years of the program only basic and applied research projects were supported; however, in 1961 the program was broadened to include field demonstrations and developmental projects. Until 1962 a nine member research review committee evaluated proposals; four five-member technical review panels were established in 1962, to evaluate the basic and applied research proposals. Dissemination of information concerning the program was achieved through printed media and by staff members at conferences and seminars. A list of approved projects gives information concerning project number, investigator and location, title, and duration of the projects. Appendixes include a listing of principal investigators and project number, institutions and agencies conducting research, subject index, libraries maintaining CRP final reports, final reports available and cost, and Cooperative Research Publications.
