Direct Grant and Fellowship Programs

AGENCY: Department of Education

ACTION: Notice reopening application deadline dates for certain direct 
grant and fellowship programs.


SUMMARY: The Secretary reopens the deadline dates for the submission of 
applications by certain applicants (see ELIGIBILITY) under certain 
direct grant and fellowship programs. All of the affected competitions 
are among those under which the Secretary is making new awards for 
fiscal year (FY) 2003. The Secretary takes this action to allow more 
time for the preparation and submission of applications by potential 
applicants adversely affected by severe weather conditions resulting 
from the typhoon in Guam and the severe ice storm in North Carolina. 
The reopenings are intended to help these potential applicants compete 
fairly with other applicants under these programs.

    Note: One of the affected programs or competitions is 
administered by the Department's Office of Elementary and Secondary 
Education and two are administered by the Office of Postsecondary 
Education. You can find information related to each of these 
competitions under the "List of Programs Affected" in this notice.

ELIGIBILITY: The reopening of deadline dates in this notice applies to 
you if you are a potential applicant from Guam which was severely 
affected by the recent typhoon or if you are a potential applicant in 
an area of North Carolina that the President has declared a disaster 
area as a result of the severe ice storm. In the case of the Jacob K. 
Javits Fellowship Program, the reopening of the deadline date applies 
to you if you live in or attend an institution of higher education in 
one of these areas. These areas include the following:
