Proposed Project: The Division of Human Resource Development (EHR/ HRD) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) has requested impact information on the Model Institutions for Excellence (MIE) Program.

Estimate of Burden: The Foundation estimates that, on average, 30 minutes per respondent will be required to complete the survey, for a total of 465.5 hours for all respondents. Respondents from the eight institutions that received NSF MIE support will complete this survey once. Respondents: STEM graduates from MIE programs. Estimated Number of Responses: 931.
