The Title VII (Bilingual Education) Fellowship Program: A Preliminary Report. Bilingual Education Paper Series, Vol. 2, No. 9.
Coballes-Vega, Carmen; And Others
A survey instrument to evaluate the program's effectiveness was sent to project directors of 49 institutes of higher education (IHE's) that participated in the Title VII Bilingual Education Fellowship Program from 1975 to 1978. Data from the 44 completed survey instruments were gathered and tabulated in July and August 1978. Areas addressed were: total number of students in the programs; disciplinary concentrations of students in the programs; number of students who dropped out of the programs; current employment status of the graduates; estimated number of teacher trainers needed in the region served by programs; and significant achievements of program graduates. Students (both masters and doctoral) in the Title VII fellowship program numbered 1,675 and bilingual teacher trainers in the same program, but not receiving fellowships numbered 1,194. Most masters students had disciplinary concentrations in bilingual education, but other significant concentrations were seen for elementary education teacher training, administration, English-as-a-second-language, and counseling. Of the 442 masters graduates (1975-1978), the majority were employed by local education agencies, and 35 were unemployed. Of the 316 doctoral degrees expected from Title VII funds between 1975-78, 82 degrees were granted, most graduates were working for IHE's, and 2 were unemployed. (AH)
