SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an 
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal 
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform 
its statutory obligations. The Director, Regulatory Information 
Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that notice 
containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission 
of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped 
by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. 
new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) 
Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and 
proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of 
collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites 
public comment.

    Abstract: These instructions and forms will be used by scholarship 
applicants to provide information to the U.S. Department of Education 
that is needed to select recipients for the Erma Byrd Scholarship 
Program. Title III of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 authorizes 
the Secretary to award scholarships to individuals pursuing a course of 
study that will lead to a career in industrial health and safety 
occupations, including mine safety. Under the Erma Byrd Scholarship 
Program, individual students apply for scholarships. In order to judge 
all applications in a consistent manner and to reduce the time required 
for the review process, it is necessary to collect the appropriate 
information from all individual applicants by means of a uniform 
application form.
    This information collection is being submitted under the 
Streamlined Clearance Process for Discretionary Grant Information 
Collections (1894-0001). Therefore, the 30-day public comment period 
notice will be the only public comment notice published for this 
information collection.
