Office of Postsecondary Education, Fund for the Improvement of 
Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) Notice Announcing Technical Assistance 
Workshops on Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 Programs

SUMMARY: This notice provides information about workshops to assist 
individuals interested in learning more about the Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 
programs of the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education 
(FIPSE). Program staff will present program information and answer 
questions about FIPSE's programs. The workshops will focus primarily on 
the Comprehensive Program, which provides grants for innovative reform 
projects that hold promise as models for the resolution of important 
issues and problems in postsecondary education. Additional information 
about FIPSE's programs can be found on the Internet at the following 
site: http://www.ed.gov/FIPSE
    Although the Department has not yet announced in the Federal 
Register a closing date for any of its FY 2001 grant competitions, the 
Department is holding these workshops to give potential applicants 
relevant background information on FIPSE programs for which grant 
competitions are expected to be held in FY 2001. Specific requirements 
for grant competitions will be announced in the Federal Register.
