1979 STRENGTHENING GRANTS AND A STATISTICAL SUMMARY


BIFAD is the Roard for International Food and Agricultural Development of the
Agency for International Development U.S. Dept. of State, Washington,
D.C. 20523 (telephone: (202) 632-7938). Dr. Elmer Kiehl is Executive Director
of the BIFAD staff as of January 1, 1980. In 1979 RIFAD made 46 University
Strengthening Grants under Title XII of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as
amended by Section 312 of the International Development and Food Assistance Act
of 1975.
Some universities chose to concentrate their strengthening program in one or
two subject areas, and others focused on a specific type problem or methodo-
logical issue which cut across several subject areas. This is characterized
briefly in the "Principal Subject Focus" (Attachment A). In virtually no case,
however, are the strengthening activities of these universities entirely
limited to this concentration or focus. Other Institutions emphasize broad
institutional strengthening, mobilization of total university resources
relevant to Title XII, or development of several selected areas. These are
characterized as "General." Similarly, some universities plan to concentrate
on an area or limited number of countries as listed in the table. With regard
to foreign language involvement, where more than one language is indicated, the
principal language is underscored.
The Statistical Summary (Attachment B) lists AID and the universities'
contributions for the first year and for the five year total grant period.
This summary also indicates the universities' planned overseas activities as
a percentage of total program (AID plus university contribution) for the
first year and for the five-year program. The overall percentage for over-
seas contributions for the 42 "Matching" grants is 21 percent for the first
year and also, coincidentally, 21 percent, for the five-year program. The
overall percentage in the case of the four minority "Non-Matching" grants is
24 percent for the first year and 23 percent for the tdtal five-year program.

(BIFAD, continued from p. 1)

This category of activities includes foreign travel and per diem, sabbaticals,
visiting scholars from Lesser Developed Countries (LCD), training of LDC
graduate students in U.S. institutions and of U.S. students in LDC
institutions, including thesis research and similar expenditures.


It must be noted; however, that these figures are approximate estimates of
overseas expenditures due to the fact that some AID and university funds for
the items listed above are not specifically spelled out in the strengthening
grant budgets, therefore making it difficult to distinguish overseas from
domestic funds.


The data listed in the table substantially understates the university
contributions. A random sample of 10 universities indicates the overhead
contribution is about 30 percent of total direct costs of the AID plus
university program contribution. Also, many universities indicate sub-
stantial corollary activities to be linked directly to but not counted as
part of the strengthening program. (From BIFAD BRIEFS, Oct/Nov. .1979).

BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND LITERATURE OF
AGRICULTURE

A new departmental series -
Bibliographies and Literature of
Agriculture has been established to
provide a focal point where biblio-
graphic information compiled by
scientists and researchers, librarians
and other professional personnel from
all USDA agencies can be published and
made available to interested sections
of the public on a national basis. It
is expected that publication in this
series will serve as an alert to
bibliographers of work produced by
colleagues and thus avoid any chance
duplication of effort. The following
titles, originally distributed by the
Superintendent of Documents to deposi-
tory libraries, are also currently
available free of charge from Technical
Information Systems.
