Program Information and Application Procedures. FY 1976. [Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education.]
Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The Educational Amendments Act of 1972 authorizes the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare to improve postsecondary educational opportunities by providing assistance to educational institutions and agencies for a broad range of reforms and innovations. To implement this authority, the Secretary has established the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, a separate organizational unit with the Department of HEW, under the general supervision of the Assistant Secretary for Education. The fund is administered by a director and a small professional staff. The director is responsive to a 15-member, board appointed by the Secretary and authorized to recommend policy priorities for the fund and to review grants and contracts of a specific kind and amount. The fund is a governmental, grant-making organization with four distinguishing characteristics. It is comprehensive, responsive, action-oriented, and risk-taking. The fund administers a comprehensive program competition to which applicants are invited to submit proposals related to any or all of the purposes for which the fund can make awards. (Author/KE)
