Notice reopening application deadline for certain applicants.
The Secretary reopens for a limited purpose the deadline date for grant applications under the HSI Program Fiscal Year 2003 grant competition. The original deadline date was published in the Federal Register on January 29, 2003 (68 FR 4454). Some applicants submitted incorrect enrollment data on the Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assurance Form in their applications. As a result, the reported data indicated that Hispanic students comprised less than 25 percent of applicants' enrollment of undergraduate full-time equivalent students, less than 50 percent of the applicants' Hispanic students were low-income individuals, or both. We are reopening the deadline date to allow these applicants to resubmit their Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assurance Form with corrected enrollment data. This revised data should reflect the date that each applicant submitted its original application, not current data. In addition, each applicant must submit documentation to support any revised enrollment data. The documentation should be concise and easily verifiable. Application Deadline: December 29, 2003.
Transmittal of Applications: The resubmitted Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assurance Form and supporting documentation must be sent by hardcopy to: Mr. Carlos Reeder, U.S. Department of Education, 1990 K Street, NW., 6th Floor, Washington, DC 20006-8513. Your submittals must be postmarked no later than December 19, 2003.Start Further Info
