On August 1, 2003, a notice was published in the Federal Register (68 FR 45229) inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2004 for the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program. The notice listed a deadline date of October 3, 2003, for the transmittal of applications.
The Secretary extends the deadline date for the transmittal of applications for this competition from applicants in certain nationally declared disaster areas. The Secretary takes this action to allow more time for the preparation and submission of applications by potential applicants in certain States that have been affected by Hurricane Isabel. The extension of this deadline date is intended to help the potential applicants compete fairly with other applicants under this competition.
Eligibility: The extended deadline date in this notice applies to you if you are a potential applicant from an area on the following chart. The President has declared each of these locations a disaster area as a result of recent severe weather conditions. These areas are as follows:
State: Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia.
The new deadline date for the transmittal of applications is October 14, 2003.
