International Education: A Compendium of Federal Agency Programs.
Owens, Becky, Comp.
Federal agency programs in support of international education are summarized in this report. The publication is designed to help readers discover unknown programs, more fully understand more familiar programs, and learn more about specific requirements for agencies where proposals have been unsuccessfully submitted in the past. Focus is directed to ongoing programs that constitute a reliable core of support for international education activity. Programs that show promise for heightened activity are more thoroughly examined than those where potential is limited. Programs of the following agencies are included: Agency for International Development; Department of Agriculture; Department of Health, Education and Welfare; Department of State; Department of Transportation; Energy Research and Development Administration; Environmental Protection Agency; Japan/U.S. Friendship Commission; National Aeronautics and Space Administration; National Academy of Sciences; National Endowment for the Humanities; National Institutes of Health; National Science Foundation; Smithsonian Institution; and the U.S. Information Agency. Each agency summary is structured to provide information on functions, eligibility, deadlines, key contact persons, and other types of data. (SW)
