Notice reopening application deadline dates for certain direct grant and fellowship programs.
The Secretary reopens the deadline dates for the submission of applications by certain applicants (see ELIGIBILITY) under certain direct grant and fellowship programs. All of the affected competitions are among those under which the Secretary is making new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2003. The Secretary takes this action to allow more time for the preparation and submission of applications by potential applicants adversely affected by severe weather conditions resulting from the typhoon in Guam and the severe ice storm in North Carolina. The reopenings are intended to help these potential applicants compete fairly with other applicants under these programs.
One of the affected programs or competitions is administered by the Department's Office of Elementary and Secondary Education and two are administered by the Office of Postsecondary Education. You can find information related to each of these competitions under the “List of Programs Affected” in this notice.
The reopening of deadline dates in this notice applies to you if you are a potential applicant from Guam which was severely affected by the recent typhoon or if you are a potential applicant in an area of North Carolina that the President has declared a disaster area as a result of the severe ice storm. In the case of the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program, the reopening of the deadline date applies to you if you live in or attend an institution of higher education in one of these areas. These areas include the following:
|North Carolina||Alamance, Alexander, Anson, Burke, Cabarrus, Catawba, Chatham, Cleveland, Davidson, Durham, Edgecombe, Forsyth, Franklin, Gaston, Ganville, Guilford, Halifax, Harnett, Iredell, Lee, Lincoln, McDowell, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Moore, Nash, Orange, Person, Randolph, Rowan, Rutherford, Stanly, Union, Vance, and Wake.|
