Overview Information

Education Research and Special Education Research Grant Programs. Applications for New Awards. CFDA Nos: 84.305A, 84.305B, 84.305D, 84.305E, 84.305H, 84.324A, 84.324B, and 84.324D.

SUMMARY:

On March 6, 2012, the Institute of Education Sciences in the U.S. Department of Education published in the Federal Register (77 FR 13297) a notice inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year 2013 for the Education Research and Special Education Research Grant Programs. This notice makes several corrections to the March 6, 2012, notice inviting applications (March 6 NIA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the March 6 NIA, the Department announced 13 competitions to be held under the Education Research and Special Education Research Grant Programs. The chart at the end of the March 6 NIA (see 77 FR 13297, 13302-13303) provided competition-specific information, including the dates application packages would be available as well as the deadline dates for applications. The entries in the chart corresponding to the following three competitions contained errors: Research on Statistical and Research Methodology in Education (CFDA 84.305D), Evaluation of State and Local Education Programs and Policies (CFDA 84.305E), and Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships in Education Research (CFDA 84.305H). Following is a description of the errors along with the correct information:

For the CFDA 84.305D competition:

We indicated that the application package would be available on July 19, 2012; however, the correct date the application package will be available is April 19, 2012.

We also indicated that that the deadline for transmittal of applications would be September 20, 2012; however, the correct deadline is June 21, 2012.

For the CFDA 84.305E competition:

We indicated that the application package would be available on April 19, 2012; however, the correct date the application package will be available is July 19, 2012.

We also indicated that that the deadline for transmittal of applications would be June 21, 2012; however, the correct deadline is September 20, 2012.

For the CFDA 84.305H competition:

We indicated that the estimated range of awards was $100,000 to $400,000; however, the correct range is $50,000 to $200,000.

We also incorrectly indicated that the project period for this grant would be up to 3 years; the corrected project period is up to 2 years.

For these reasons, we correct the chart containing this information. On pages 13302-13303 of the March 6 NIA, the chart is corrected to appear as follows:
