NOTES

1. Material for this section has been drawn from a variety of sources, including work commissioned by the study committee in 1992 and provided by Ms. Judith Grumstrup-Scott and Ms. Beryl Beaderly. Sections have also been drawn from previous NRC study committee reports, most notably that of the 1978 study committee. The last section on evaluation issues is drawn from a paper by Dr. Georgine Pion commissioned by the 1989 NRC study committee.

2. In October 1992, the research components of the three institutes of ADAMHA joined the National Institutes of Health.

3. For example, earlier study committees called for a shift from predoctoral to postdoctoral support in the behavioral sciences, which has occurred.

4. The relative diminution of the fellowship mechanism within the NRSA program is an interesting feature of the history of the NRSA program. The 1974 authorization specified that not less than 25 percent of total support should be directed to fellowship support; the fraction has declined to 15 percent in recent years.
