30-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Evaluation of the Professional Fellows Program, 13225-13226 [2020-04599]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 45 / Friday, March 6, 2020 / Notices under the Names Rule? If so, how should each fund type be treated and why? For example, because the securities of closed-end funds and business development companies are not redeemable and may not be publicly-traded, does the 60 day notice requirement for changes to a fund’s 80 percent policy provide meaningful protections to investors in such funds? If not, what changes are appropriate? Are there any other types of funds or other vehicles that should be treated differently under the Names Rule or under the general antifraud provisions of the Federal securities laws? 31 • Are there other ways in which the Names Rule should be modified to provide greater investment flexibility while still requiring that fund names suggesting a certain focus effectively convey the nature of a fund’s investments? Are there alternative ways in which fund names should be regulated or addressed that would more effectively protect investors? For example, through hyperlinks or other technology, should funds be required to connect their names to a more detailed discussion of the fund’s investment strategy in a manner that is immediately accessible to investors in a variety of contexts? Are there approaches other jurisdictions or other regulated industries use that may work well for U.S. investors? Would a principlesbased approach be better? If so, what should the principles be? VI.

Abstract of Proposed Collection The PFP is a two-way, global exchange program for mid-level emerging leaders from select foreign countries. The PFP is managed by the Professional Fellows Division of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Foreign fellows come to the United States for a five- to six-week fellowship, including a minimum fourweek tailored placement in a relevant professional organization (NGO’s, business, government, etc.) and an end of program conference in Washington, DC. While in the Unites States, the foreign fellows volunteer in their local community, stay with local families, and create follow-on project plans to implement back in their home country. A select number of U.S. counterparts travel overseas on an outbound program that is approximately two weeks in length to directly support foreign fellows’ follow-on projects. This program is funded pursuant to the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 (22 U.S.C. 24512464). To fully evaluate the effectiveness and impacts of the program, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) intends to collect data to include the perspectives of: • The foreign and U.S. fellows who participated in the PFP between 2013 and 2018; • U.S. professionals who interacted the foreign fellows during their exchange in the United States; and • U.S. families who hosted the foreign fellows during their stay. In order to do so, ECA contracted with GDIT to administer surveys and conduct face-to-face interviews with the stakeholders listed above. Methodology Data will be collected with a focus on answering how the program is advancing DoS strategic policy priorities, how well the program is meeting its goals and how alumni have operationalized skills and knowledge learned during their exchange experience to promote mutual understanding, create positive change, and build collaborative networks. The evaluation will employ a mixedmethods data collection strategy, including face-to face interviews and online surveys. Online surveys will be administered to all foreign fellows, U.S. reciprocal fellows, U.S. professionals and U.S. homestay hosts. To collect PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 more in depth responses, face-to-face interviews will be conducted with a subset of foreign fellows, foreign colleagues, U.S. reciprocal fellows, U.S. professional contacts and U.S. homestay hosts.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The PFP is a two-way, global exchange program for mid-level 
emerging leaders from select foreign countries. The PFP is managed by 
the Professional Fellows Division of the Bureau of Educational and 
Cultural Affairs. Foreign fellows come to the United States for a five- 
to six-week fellowship, including a minimum four-week tailored 
placement in a relevant professional organization (NGO's, business, 
government, etc.) and an end of program conference in Washington, DC. 
While in the Unites States, the foreign fellows volunteer in their 
local community, stay with local families, and create follow-on project 
plans to implement back in their home country. A select number of U.S. 
counterparts travel overseas on an outbound program that is 
approximately two weeks in length to directly support foreign fellows' 
follow-on projects. This program is funded pursuant to the Mutual 
Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 (22 U.S.C. 24512464).
    To fully evaluate the effectiveness and impacts of the program, the 
U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs 
(ECA) intends to collect data to include the perspectives of:
     The foreign and U.S. fellows who participated in the PFP 
between 2013 and 2018;
     U.S. professionals who interacted the foreign fellows 
during their exchange in the United States; and
     U.S. families who hosted the foreign fellows during their 
stay.

    In order to do so, ECA contracted with GDIT to administer surveys 
and conduct face-to-face interviews with the stakeholders listed above.

Methodology

    Data will be collected with a focus on answering how the program is 
advancing DoS strategic policy priorities, how well the program is 
meeting its goals and how alumni have operationalized skills and 
knowledge learned during their exchange experience to promote mutual 
understanding, create positive change, and build collaborative 
networks.
    The evaluation will employ a mixed-methods data collection 
strategy, including face-to face interviews and online surveys. Online 
surveys will be administered to all foreign fellows, U.S. reciprocal 
fellows, U.S. professionals and U.S. homestay hosts. To collect more in 
depth responses, face-to-face interviews will be conducted with a 
subset of foreign fellows, foreign colleagues, U.S. reciprocal fellows, 
U.S. professional contacts and U.S. homestay hosts. The combination of 
methods will allow GDIT to generate a quantitative profile of the 
program and at the same time, capture rich qualitative data.
