Notice Announcing the Technical Assistance Workshop for Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 Demonstration Projects to Ensure Students with Disabilities Receive a Quality Higher Education Program (Demonstration Program).
The Department expects to hold a competition for new grants under the Demonstration Program in FY 2008. This notice provides information about a one-day technical assistance workshop to assist institutions of higher education interested in preparing grant applications for FY 2008 new awards under the Demonstration Program. Program and Department staff will present information to potential applicants about the purpose of the Demonstration Program, the grant competition highlights, the peer review process, and the Grants.gov Web site, as well as suggestions for writing a quality grant proposal.
