Office of Postsecondary Education; Asian American and Native 
American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISI), Native 
American-Serving Nontribal Institutions (NASNTI), Hispanic Serving 
Institutions-STEM and Articulation (HSI-STEM), and Predominantly Black 
Institutions (PBI) Programs

AGENCY: Office of Postsecondary Education, Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice reopening the application for eligibility for AANAPISI, 
NASNTI, HSI-STEM, and PBI fiscal year (FY) 2010 competitions.


SUMMARY: On December 7, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 
FR 64059-64062) a notice inviting applications for eligibility for the 
programs authorized under Titles III and Title V of the Higher 
Education Act of 1965, as amended (FY 2010 Eligibility Notice). The FY 
2010 Eligibility Notice established a January 6, 2010 deadline date for 
applicants to apply for designation as an eligible institution under 
the Title III and Title V programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In this notice, the Department announces the 
reopening of the period for submitting an application for a designation 
of eligibility. This reopening of the application period applies only 
to those institutions that intend to apply for new awards in 
competitions to be announced this fall under the AANAPISI, NASNTI, HSI-
STEM, and PBI programs. This limited reopening is intended to ensure 
that all potential applicants to the AANAPISI, NASNTI, HSI-STEM, and 
PBI programs have the opportunity to submit applications for 
eligibility prior to the announcement of these competitions. (While 
HSI-STEM was not included in the FY 2010 Eligibility Notice, it has 
been added to this notice due to funds made available by the Student 
Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act.) If you have already submitted an 
application for eligibility based on the FY 2010 Eligibility Notice and 
were designated as eligible, you do not need to resubmit your 
application. Deadline for Transmittal of Applications: September 13,

submitted electronically using the following Web site:
