Start Preamble

Purpose of Workshop: The Department of Education will conduct technical assistance workshops to assist prospective applicants in developing their applications for the FY 2003 competition under the Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) program, authorized by title VII, part A, subpart 2, of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, 20 U.S.C. 1135-1135e. The workshops will provide information on how to develop application narratives in accordance with the program selection criteria, as well as on program regulations and grant administration. Three technical assistance workshops have been scheduled for the Spring and Summer 2002. This will allow prospective applicants sufficient time to develop proposals for the FY 2003 competition. The workshops are open to both prospective applicants and current grantees.

Prospective applicants are advised that in September 2002 the Secretary plans to publish a notice inviting applications for FY 2003 awards, contingent upon Congress appropriating funds for this program. Workshops are free to the public. You may register by e-mail at:
