SUMMARY:

This notice provides information about four workshops to assist individuals interested in learning more about the Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 programs of the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE). Program staff will present program information and answer questions about FIPSE's programs. The workshops will focus primarily on the Comprehensive Program, which provides grants for innovative reform projects that hold promise as models for the resolution of important issues and problems in postsecondary education.
