Participants in the final panel discussion on grant programs in media and educational technologies were Steve Ehrmann, Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education; Dick Humber and Grace Cavallari, National Endowment for the Humanities; Peter Dirr and Mara Mayor, CPB; and Harold Horowitz, NEA.
