Program for Increasing Educational Research Activity at Emory University. Final Report.
Lee, Eugene C.
A 3-year research and development grant was obtained in 1966 by Emory University from the U.S. Office of Education to increase the quality and quantity of educational research at the University. Funds were made available to individual faculty members in education and related fields to cover released time, research assistance, clerical assistance, and consultants. Proposals from individuals were reviewed by the R. and D. Committee and acted upon by the Coordinator of Educational Research and 29 individual satellite grants were awarded. (Summaries of these projects, including the amount of the grant, purpose, procedure, and follow-up report, are included.) Faculty members were encouraged to upgrade their research capabilities to a point where they could compete for their own research funds from other sources of funding. Five research grant applications have been submitted, with three more in preparation; four grants totalling $88,782 have been awarded; five publications based on research projects have appeared and six more are planned. A major advantage of the project was the quick accessibility of funds, which facilitated planning and the hiring of assistants; projects could be initiated while major funding was being sought and reinforcing data for applications provided. A continuing program is recommended to provide "underwriting" money and modest research activities, and to insure the continued commitment of the University to educational research. (MBM)
