Notice Inviting Applications for New Awards for Fiscal Year (FY) 
1999--Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math/Science Programs

    Purpose: (a) The Upward Bound Program provides grants to enable 
applicants to conduct projects designed to (1) identify qualified 
youths who are low-income and potential first-generation college 
students and to generate the skills and motivation necessary for 
success in completing high school and enrolling into postsecondary 
education; (2) encourage youths in the program to remain and complete 
the secondary level of education; and (3) encourage youths to enroll in 
a postsecondary institution and graduate.
    (b) The Upward Bound Math/Science Program provides grants to 
conduct projects to prepare high school students for postsecondary 
education programs that lead to careers in the fields of math and 
    Eligible Applicants: Institutions of higher education, public and 
private agencies and organizations, combinations of institutions, 
agencies, and organizations, and, in exceptional cases, secondary 
schools, if there are no other applicants capable of providing an 
Upward Bound Program in the proposed target area.
    Supplementary Information: The Department is publishing this notice 
at this time to give potential applicants adequate time to prepare 
their applications even though the Congress has not yet reauthorized 
the Upward Bound Program or appropriated money to fund new awards under 
this program. The Department anticipates that the program will be 
reauthorized and that the reauthorized program will be virtually 
unchanged from the current program. In addition, the Department 
anticipates that funds will be appropriated to funds new awards. 
However, if legislative changes are made that materially affect the 
grant award process or the operation of grant projects, the Department 
will provide additional time for applicants to amend their applications 
to reflect these changes.
    Currently, there are Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math/Science 
grants that expire in Fiscal Year 1999 and Fiscal Year 2000. However, 
to receive a new four or five year grant, applicants, including those 
that have five year grants that expire in Fiscal Year 2000, must submit 
an application under this funding competition.
    Grantees whose grants expire in Fiscal Year 2000: If such a grantee 
is successful under this competition, its new award will begin when its 
existing grant expires, i.e., September 1, 2000.
    Deadline for Transmittal of Applications:

October 2, 1998--Upward Bound Math/Science
