A Report of a Survey of Federal Support for Fifty-Four Black Colleges, Fiscal Years 1971 and 1972.
Moton Coll. Service Bureau, Washington, DC.
This report examines federal aid to a representative sample of predominantly Black institutions participating in the program of the Moton College Service Bureau. Inquiries were made of each of the 83 member institutions requesting information concerning the number of proposals submitted to federal agencies during FY 1971 and 1972 and the number funded for the same period. Responses of a sample of 54 institutions indicated proposal activity has increased dramatically. Of the institutions surveyed, 630 requests were submitted in FY 1971 and 813 in 1972. These institutions submitted 183 more proposals in 1972 than the previous year, an increase of almost 4 per institution. The increase in federal funds to $100 million for FY 1972 from approximately $80 million in 1971 represents a $20 million increase in support. The average amount of increase for all institutions was $1.5 to $1.8 million. Only one institution reported a decrease in federal support. This document was published through the Technical Assistance Consortium To Improve College Services (TACTICS). (Author/PG)
