Start Preamble

Title: Head Start Fellows Program.

OMB No.: 0970-0140.

Description: Public Law 103-252, the Human Services Amendments of 1994, amended the Head Start Act (the Act) to authorize the creation of a Head Start Fellows Program to support the professional development of individuals working in the fields of child development and family services. The Act was most recently reauthorized through fiscal year 2003, by the Coats Human Services Amendments of 1998, Public Law 105-285.

Head Start Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis to individuals (other than Federal employees) selected from among applicants who are working in the fields of child development and children and family services. Information collected from the applications is used to ensure that individuals selected to be Head Start Fellows have the appropriate experience/skills, and that the training developed for them and the work assigned to them will enhance their ability to make significant contributions to the fields of child development and family services. The information collected is used by program staff and policy makers at the Federal level to make judgments on the progress and needs of the program.

Respondents: Individuals who work in local Head Start programs or fields of child development and children and family services.
