Reopening of Closing Date for Receipt of Applications for 
Designation as an Eligible Institution for Fiscal Year (FY) 1998, 
Eligibility for the Part A Strengthening Institutions and Hispanic-
Serving Institutions Program

SUMMARY: On November 13, 1997, a notice was published in the Federal 
Register (62 FR 60988-60989) that established a closing date for 
transmittal of applications for the FY 1998 designation of eligible 
institutions for the Part A Strengthening Institutions and Hispanic-
Serving Institutions Programs. The purpose of this notice is to reopen 
the closing date for the transmittal of applications and to allow 
applicants additional time to establish eligibility for purposes of 
receiving a waiver of certain non-Federal share requirement under the 
Federal Work Study (FWS) or Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity 
Grant (FSEOG) programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher 
Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA).
    Some institutions were unable to meet the established deadline date 
for submitting eligibility applications to obtain FWS or FSEOG program 
waivers. Under the reopened eligibility process, these institutions may 
apply for designation as an eligible institution under Title III, Part 
A of the HEA. Eligibility designation will only be for the purpose of 
qualifying for a waiver of the non-Federal share requirements of FWS 
and FSEOG programs.
    Institutions will be notified of the outcome of the reopening of 
the closing date by November 30, 1998.
