Abstract:In 1962, in response to a presidential initiative, the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Department of State launched the Southern African Student Program (S.A.S.P.) to provide educational opportunities in the U.S.A. for the increasing number of young refugees from white minority rule in Africa. The African American Institute has since 1962 administered the S.A.S.P. This article reviews the findings of a detailed study of the S.A.S.P. and suggests some hypotheses to explain its relative lack of succes. The results are based on a statistical analysis of 310 autobiographies of S.A.S.P. students (out of a total of 511), and lengthy follow-up interviews with 67 of them during 1967-8. Notes, tables.
