The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has established an endowment fund to support the Grover J. Andrews Research Award to recognize Grover J. Andrews, Ed.D., for his visionary leadership and profound contributions to research in the field of continuing education and training. His support for research, particularly within the International Association for Continuing Education and Training, has led to continuous quality improvements in the field, now incorporated into programs in education, business, industry, government, health care, professional and trade organizations, and labor unions. The Continuing Education Unit Criteria and Guidelines, continually updated through research programs spearheaded by Dr. Andrews, are now used throughout the world as the benchmark for quality continuing education and training programs.
The purpose of the endowment is to support research studies aimed at refining and strengthening standards of good practice in continuing education and training. The fund supports projects that result in an IACET publication useful to continuing education and training professionals and organizations.
IACET's Grover Andrews Research Committee decides on specific projects to fund on a annual or bi-annual basis.
