SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Board of the Fund for the
Improvement of Postsecondary Education is established under Title VII,
Part B, section 742 of the Higher Education Amendments of 1998 (20
U.S.C. 1138a). The National Board of the Fund is authorized to
recommend to the Director of the Fund and the Assistant Secretary for
Postsecondary Education priorities for funding and procedures for grant
awards.
    On Sunday, November 19, 2000, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. the Board
will meet in open session. The proposed agenda for the open portion of
the meeting will include an overview of the Fund's program status and
special initiatives.
    On Sunday, November 19, 2000, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. the meeting
will be closed to the public for the purpose of discussing
Comprehensive Program grant applications, including both funded and
unfunded applications. This portion of the meeting will be closed under
the authority of section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Act (Pub. L. 92-
463; 5 U.S.C.A. Appendix 2). Because the review and discussion of
applications and the qualifications of proposed staff to work on these
grants are likely to disclose trade secrets and commercial or financial
information obtained from a person and privileged or confidential, and
to disclose information of a personal nature where disclosure would
constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy if
conducted in open session, this portion of the meeting should be closed
to the public as provided for by exemptions 4 and 6 of 5 U.S.C. 552
(b)(c).
    The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities. An
individual with a disability who will need an auxiliary aid or service
to participate in the meeting (e.g., interpreting service, assistive
listening device or materials in an alternate format) should notify the
contact person listed in this notice at least two weeks before the
scheduled meeting date. Although the Department will attempt to meet a
request received after that date, the requested auxiliary aid or
service may not be available because of insufficient time to arrange
it.
    Records are kept of all Board proceedings, and are available for
public
