Federal Funding to Promote Sex Equity in Education: 1980.
Klein, Susan S.; Goodman, Melanie A.
This publication discusses federal funds which are available for research and development in sex equity in education. A major objective is to identify specific Federal funding opportunities for projects focusing on sex equity. Another objective is to help individuals understand the overall Federal pattern of support for activities to promote sex equity in education. The bulk of the document describes federal funding sources. Programs from the Department of Education and from other departments and agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities are described. The key sex equity funding programs are Women's Educational Equity Act Program, the National Institute of Education, Vocational Education Act Programs, and Civil Rights Act, Title IV. The publication also describes potential funders of sex equity outside of education. In addition to the program descriptions, the publication discusses the pattern of federal support for sex equity in education and gives advice to seekers of federal sex equity funds. With regard to the pattern of federal support, the good news is that the federal government has been increasing its support of sex equity over the past five years. The bad news is that compared to many other areas of Federal support for educational problems, including other equity concerns, the support for sex equity projects is almost invisible. (Author/RM)
