information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of 
the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on those who are to respond, including through the use of 
appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    Type of Review: Reinstatement.
    Title of Collection: Application for Grants Under the Minority

    OMB Control Number: 1840-0109.
    Agency Form Number(s): N/A.
    Frequency of Responses: Annually.
    Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local and

    Abstract: The information on the applicant's eligibility form will 
be collected annually from applicants who desire to apply for awards 
under Title III, Part E--Minority Science and Engineering Improvement 
Program (MSEIP). Applicants for MSEIP include public and private, non-
profit postsecondary institutions, non-profit science-oriented 
organizations, and professional scientific societies. Without the 
collection of this information, the Department cannot properly screen 
applicants for eligibility and therefore, cannot award new grants in 
accordance with the Congressional intent of this program. The program 
staff and peer reviewers will use the information collected to evaluate 
applications and make funding decisions.
    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.

be accessed from the RegInfo.gov Web site at 
http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain or from the Department's Web site
