Carnegie Corp. of New York, NY.
This report lists and briefly describes 286 grants and appropriations, totaling $45 million, made by the Carnegie Corporation during the 1990-91 year for purposes that were broadly educational in nature. Financial support was concentrated in three areas. The first, the education and healthy development of children and youth, included grants designed to enhance children's potential in early childhood; increase educational achievement and reduce health problems among young adolescents; reform educational systems; and improve science education. The second area, the strengthening of human resources in developing countries, included grants for scientific and technological development; maternal and child health; health and human behavior; South African development; and public understanding of development. The third category, cooperative security, included financial support for projects related to: (1) the Soviet Union and United States-Soviet relations and cooperation; (2) arms control, disarmament, and prevention of proliferation; (3) political and economic transition in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union; and (4) improved communication between scholars and policymakers. A small number of grants outside of these categories are listed. The report also lists publications and nonprint materials resulting from the projects funded and the addresses of grant recipients.
