(These contract and grant awards are administered by the U.S. Office of Education's Division of Research and Demonstration and Office of Career Education, the National Institute of Education, and the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education.) The publication is organized into three sections. Section I contains descriptions of the four agencies, names of key personnel, and a list of project officers and their telephone numbers. Section II contains the project resumes and two appendices listing the institutions and teacher educators participating in two personnel development programs (Vocational Education Graduate Leadership Development Programs and Vocational Education Teacher Certification Fellowship Program).

Each resume includes bibliographic information and an abstract focusing on project objectives and procedures. Section III provides six indices: subject, project director, organization, responsible agency, geographic location (state and U.S. Congressional District), and contract/grant number.
