The Program To Encourage Minority Students To Become Teachers

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Withdrawal of closing date notice inviting applications for new 
awards for fiscal year (FY) 1998.


SUMMARY: On October 7, 1997 a notice was published in the Federal 
Register (62 FR 52435) inviting applications for new awards under the 
Program to Encourage Minority Students to Become Teachers for FY 1998. 
However, Congress appropriated $2,212,000, which is only enough funding 
for continuation grants. The Department of Education withdraws the 
previous notice inviting application for new awards for FY 1998 under 
the Program to Encourage Minority Students to Become Teachers. The 
Department will not make new awards in fiscal year 1998.
