Office of Postsecondary Education; Strengthening Institutions 
(SIP), American Indian Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities 
(TCCU), Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian-Serving Institutions (ANNH) 
and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Programs; Notice of Reopening 
the Processes for Designation as an Eligible Institution for Fiscal 
Year (FY) 2001 and FY 2002 for a Limited Purpose

    Summary: An institution of higher education (IHE) that is 
designated an eligible institution under the SIP, TCCU, ANNH and HSI 
Programs may receive a waiver of certain non-Federal share requirements 
under the Federal Work Study (FWS) and Federal Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) Programs. The SIP, TCCU, and ANNH Programs 
are authorized under Title III, Part A of the Higher Education Act of 
1965, as amended (HEA). The HSI Program is authorized under Title V of 
the HEA. The FWS and FSEOG Programs are authorized under Title IV of 
the HEA.
    On November 16, 2000 and December 26, 2001, we published Federal 
Register notices (65 FR 69291-69293 and 66 FR 66407-66409) that 
announced the processes for IHEs to apply for eligibility designation 
for FY 2001 and FY 2002 for the SIP, TCCU, ANNH and the HSI Programs. 
Some IHEs did not meet the established deadlines for submitting the 
applications, and therefore were not designated eligible to receive 
waivers of certain cost-sharing requirements under the FWS and FSEOG 
Programs. We are reopening the FY 2001 and FY 2002 eligibility 
processes to allow IHEs to apply for designation as eligible 
institutions under the SIP, TCCU, ANNH and HSI Programs for the limited 
purpose of receiving waivers of certain non-Federal share requirements 
of the FWS and FSEOG Programs for FY 2001 and FY 2002.
