Analysis of Hispanic-Related Grants.
Data on concentrations of Hispanic populations in the United States, Hispanic enrollments in two-year, four-year, and graduate programs, and Hispanic-related awards by the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) by category of institution are presented. Included are: the distribution of the total Hispanic population of the United States; full-time Hispanic enrollment in higher education, 1974-1978; total earned degrees in higher education by Hispanics; funding of Hispanic-related proposals by FIPSE 1973-1980; and Minority Institutions Science Improvement Program (MISIP) funding for Hispanic programs, 1975-1980. Appendices include: a description of Hispanic-related grants awarded by FIPSE and MISIP; minority institutions eligible for MISIP awards; supplementary tables; and the legislative history of FIPSE and MISIP. Among the recommendations are that (1) FIPSE define and target "Hispanic" as one of the populations to be served in providing equal opportunity (to fulfill subsection (1) of Sec 1001 of Title X) and (2) FIPSE solicit proposals targeting retention and matriculation of Hispanics at the masters and doctoral levels. A list of tables, definitions, and references are provided. (LC)
