Abstract : The program provides opportunities for research in the physical sciences, engineering, life sciences, business, and administrative sciences. The program has been effective in providing basic research opportunities to the faculty of universities, colleges, and technical institutions throughout the United States. The program is available to faculty members in all academic grades: instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, professor, department chairman, and research facility directors. It has proven especially beneficial to young faculty members who are starting their academic research programs and to senior faculty members who have spent time in university administration and are desirous of returning to scholarly research programs. Beginning with the 1982 program, research opportunities were provided for 17 graduate students. The 1982 pilot student program was judged highly successful and was expanded for the 1983 program to 53 students.
