Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests

AGENCY: Department of Education.

SUMMARY: The Acting Director, Information Collection Clearance
Division, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of
Management, invites comments on the proposed information collection
requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before
October 4, 2010.

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 Acting Director, Information Collection
Clearance Division, 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. The Department of
Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the
following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper
functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and
used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4)
how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of
the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department
minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including
through the use of information technology.

    Abstract: The Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program is authorized by
Title VII, Part A, Subpart 1 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as
amended (HEA), and provides up to four years of financial assistance to
students to undertake graduate study at the doctoral and Master of Fine
Arts level in selected fields of arts, humanities, and social sciences.
Fellows are selected on the basis of (1) superior academic ability
demonstrated by their achievements and exceptional promise; and (2)
financial need. The amounts of new and continuing awards are based on a
student's financial need as determined by the Title IV, Part F needs
analysis system. Each individual fellow's need must be assessed and
reported each year, along with a continuing fellow's academic progress
as determined by the institution. This collection is completed annually
by grantee institutions to report on the fellows' progress and levels
of financial need for the next academic year. The Department of
Education (ED) uses this data to calculate fellowship amounts and the
total grant amount sent to each institution for each fiscal year.
