SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The EDSRG Program provides funds to eligible doctoral students to cultivate their research skills through preparation of research manuscripts that focus on policy-relevant housing and urban development issues. Students, who are in the early stages of their doctoral studies, have 12 months to complete a major research study. The maximum amount to be awarded to a doctoral student is $15,000.

The Office of University Partnerships under the Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research (PD&R) administers this program. In addition to this program, the Office of University Partnerships administers HUD's ongoing grant programs to institutions of higher education as well as creates initiatives through which colleges and universities can bring their traditional missions of teaching, research, service, and outreach to bear on the pressing local problems in their communities.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.517. On May 12, 2008, (Vol. 73, No. 92) HUD published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) announcing the availability of $100,000 in FY 2008 funds for the EDSRG Program. The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the NOFA. As a result, HUD has funded the applications announced below, and in accordance with Section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the names, addresses, and amounts of those awards as shown in Appendix A.
