On September 27, 2001 we published in the Federal Register (66 FR 49371) a notice inviting applications for new awards for FY 2002 for the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program (JKJ). The notice stated that the Secretary would determine the JKJ stipend level for the academic year 2002-2003 based on the level of support provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) graduate fellowships, with adjustments as necessary to ensure that the amount would not exceed the fellow's demonstrated level of financial need.
This notice is to clarify that the Secretary will determine the stipend level for the JKJ by using the level of the NSF stipend level for the Graduate Research Fellowship Program as of April 16, 2002. The Secretary intended to specify a date for this determination in the notice inviting applications, but did not do so.Start Further Info
