Escobedo, Theresa Herrera; Acevedo, Baltazar
An experimental project at the University of Texas at Austin, which was designed to increase the participation of minorities and women in educational research and related work, is described. The project brings together individuals who are at the post-doctoral and pre-doctoral level to cooperatively work on research questions. The project model includes the following provisions: (1) stipends for four post-doctoral participants and eight pre-doctoral participants and experience in special activities and research projects; (2) special activities that include monthly seminars conducted by the post-doctoral participants and other scholars; (3) special sessions (five per year) to be conducted by nationally recognized researchers; (4) opportunities to engage in team research projects and in individual research projects; (5) access to support services such as statistician consultant services, computer time, and library resources; and (6) the opportunity to engage in publication of research findings through a project-sponsored compilation of research projects. Aspects of 1978-79 program recruitment, support services, training, and dissemination activities are described, as are proposed activities for 1979-80. Appended materials include information and forms concerning selection criteria, project needs assessment, training session agendas, monthly progress reports, session evaluations, program evaluation, research teams and topics.
