Comments A 60-day public comment Notice was published in the Federal Register on January 5, 2006. This comment period ended March 6, 2006. Several commenters expressed appreciation for the effort to recognize higher education community service. One commenter suggested that information be collected about the service and donations of a college’s alumni, and another sought collection of detailed information about the hurricane relief agencies to which colleges and students made donations. In the interest of keeping the application as short and easy to complete as possible, these questions have not been added. One commenter suggested that the application guidance state that applicants need fill out ‘‘only as much as they can.’’ In order to minimize burden, several questions have been eliminated; and, for some questions, an ‘‘information not available’’ option has been provided. One commenter asked that the application request only ‘‘actual data,’’ not estimates, because ‘‘responsible institutions should be able to provide actual numbers.’’ Recognizing that not all colleges have established systems for collecting data on student service, the application continues to request estimates rather than insist on verifiable data. However, the application guidance requests that estimates be based on the best information available. One commenter suggested that the application provide an example in order to give applicants a sense of what a good project summary should include. Applicants will be directed to examples of good project summaries that will be provided on the Corporation’s Web site. Description: The President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll and Awards program supports the President’s Call to Service and the Corporation’s strategic goals, especially the goal of significantly increasing community service by college students. The Application for the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll will collect information from institutions of higher education about student community service activities, and—in this first year especially— hurricane relief activities. Data from this application will provide the basis for a national honor roll and awards program designed to promote awareness of higher education community service efforts and to inspire expanded and more effective service efforts in the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:39 Mar 28, 2006 Jkt 208001 future. The initial deadline for institutions to submit applications is July 31, 2006, based on information for the year ending June 30. It is expected that a similar application/information collection activity will be repeated annually, with a similar annual deadline.

Comments

    A 60-day public comment Notice was published in the Federal 
Register on January 5, 2006. This comment period ended March 6, 2006. 
Several commenters expressed appreciation for the effort to recognize 
higher education community service. One commenter suggested that 
information be collected about the service and donations of a college's 
alumni, and another sought collection of detailed information about the 
hurricane relief agencies to which colleges and students made 
donations. In the interest of keeping the application as short and easy 
to complete as possible, these questions have not been added. One 
commenter suggested that the application guidance state that applicants 
need fill out ``only as much as they can.'' In order to minimize 
burden, several questions have been eliminated; and, for some 
questions, an ``information not available'' option has been provided. 
One commenter asked that the application request only ``actual data,'' 
not estimates, because ``responsible institutions should be able to 
provide actual numbers.'' Recognizing that not all colleges have 
established systems for collecting data on student service, the 
application continues to request estimates rather than insist on 
verifiable data. However, the application guidance requests that 
estimates be based on the best information available. One commenter 
suggested that the application provide an example in order to give 
applicants a sense of what a good project summary should include. 
Applicants will be directed to examples of good project summaries that 
will be provided on the Corporation's Web site.
    Description: The President's Higher Education Community Service 
Honor Roll and Awards program supports the President's Call to Service 
and the Corporation's strategic goals, especially the goal of 
significantly increasing community service by college students. The 
Application for the President's Higher Education Community Service 
Honor Roll will collect information from institutions of higher 
education about student community service activities, and--in this 
first year especially--hurricane relief activities. Data from this 
application will provide the basis for a national honor roll and awards 
program designed to promote awareness of higher education community 
service efforts and to inspire expanded and more effective service 
efforts in the future. The initial deadline for institutions to submit 
applications is July 31, 2006, based on information for the year ending 
June 30. It is expected that a similar application/information 
collection activity will be repeated annually, with a similar annual 
deadline.
    The estimated number of respondents and estimated burden hours 
reflected in this notice are lower than those in the 60-day notice. 
These estimates, as reflected below, properly should be based on the 
number of anticipated applicants rather than the number of eligible 
institutions.
