SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Board of the Fund for the

of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1138a). The Board is 
authorized to advise the Director of the Fund and the Assistant 
Secretary for Postsecondary Education on (1) priorities for the 
improvement of postsecondary education, including recommendations for 
the improvement of postsecondary education and for the evaluation, 
dissemination, and adaptation of demonstrated improvements in 
postsecondary educational practice; and (2) the operation of the Fund, 
including advice on planning documents, guidelines, and procedures for 
grant competitions prepared by the Fund.
    On Monday, June 9, 2003, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 12 p.m. to 
3:30 p.m., the Board will meet in open session. The proposed agenda for

Committee Act and exemptions (2) and (6) of the Government in the

of Board personnel matters will relate solely to the internal personnel 
rules and practices of an agency, and may disclose information of a
