ACTION: Notice of the 2010-2011 award year deadline dates for the 
campus-based programs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Secretary announces the 2010-2011 award year deadline 
dates for the submission of requests and documents from postsecondary 
institutions for the campus-based programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study 
(FWS), and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) 
programs are collectively known as the campus-based programs.
    The Federal Perkins Loan Program encourages institutions to make 
low-interest, long-term loans to needy undergraduate and graduate 
students to help pay for their education.
    The FWS Program encourages the part-time employment of needy 
undergraduate and graduate students to help pay for their education and 
to involve the students in community service activities.
    The FSEOG Program encourages institutions to provide grants to 
exceptionally needy undergraduate students to help pay for their cost 
of education.
    The Federal Perkins Loan, FWS, and FSEOG programs are authorized by 
parts E and C, and part A, subpart 3, respectively, of title IV of the 
Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.
    Throughout the year, in its ``Electronic Announcements,'' the 
Department will continue to provide additional information for the
