Maust, Ann Parker; Knight, Lucy
The document describes a sampling of Federal resources available for improving citizen education. It was prepared to give staff members of Federal agencies an overview of educational programs dealing with citizen education and to help educators as they design and implement citizen education programs. The document is presented in two Parts. Part I reviews and analyzes U.S. Office of Education (USOE) programs which directly support citizen education or which indirectly contribute to public participation in citizen education. Programs include Fulbright-Hays, Ethnic Heritage Studies, International Studies Centers, and Teacher Corps. Part II describes citizen education activities of the Education Division, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, as well as some programs of the Law Enforcement Assistance Agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Science Foundation. For each program, information is given on type and extent of Federal involvement, objectives and background, eligible applicants, geographic participation, address and contact person, and relationship of the program to citizen education.
