DATES: mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The Comprehensive Program supports innovative grants and cooperative agreements to improve postsecondary education. It supports reforms, innovations, and significant improvements of postsecondary education that respond to problems of national significance and serve as national models. Priorities: Under this competition, we are particularly interested in applications that meet the following invitational priorities. Invitational Priorities: For FY 2008 these priorities are invitational priorities. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(1) we do not give an application that meets these invitational priorities a competitive or absolute preference over other applications. These priorities are: Invitational Priority 1. Under this priority we are particularly interested in projects that have demonstrated promising results in earlier evaluations and that will yield greater impact on a larger scale, using more rigorous evaluation methodologies (at least quasi-experimental). It is expected that the educational activities and interventions that are the subject of proposals will have demonstrated successful outcomes, but not necessarily with methods that meet the rigor of an experimental or quasi-experimental design. Less rigorous methodologies, VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:33 Mar 20, 2008 Jkt 214001 such as pre- and post-tests and descriptive or attitudinal studies, were appropriate for use in generating the hypotheses that will now be tested on a larger scale, using more rigorous methodologies and reducing or eliminating biases that are common in smaller, anecdotal studies. Applicants are encouraged to consult the report by the Secretary’s Academic Competitiveness Council (http:// www.ed.gov/about/inits/ed/ competitiveness/acc-mathscience/ index.html) for a more detailed explanation about appropriate evaluation methodologies for rigorous evaluations, defined as being at least at the quasi-experimental level. We are particularly interested in proposals for projects that can be expanded, scaled up, and evaluated rigorously to achieve one or more of the following goals: (1) To encourage higher levels of access, persistence, and completion of graduation requirements for higher education students. (2) To align curriculum on a State or multi-state level between high schools and colleges, and between two-year and four-year postsecondary programs, to ensure continuing academic progress and transferability of credits. (3) To improve the mathematics and science proficiency of postsecondary students, including pre-service mathematics and science teachers. (4) To enable postsecondary students, including pre-service teachers, to achieve proficiency in or advanced proficiency or postsecondary institutions to develop programs in one or more critical need languages: Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian, and languages in the Indic, Iranian, and Turkic language families. Invitational Priority 2. Under this priority we are particularly interested in projects that are designed to establish, improve, or expand Professional Science Master’s degree programs, which combine traditional academic training with specialized knowledge and skills needed for work in science and technology research, product development, manufacturing, or related areas. Projects should include industry partners to ensure that education and training in the Professional Science Master’s degree program align with the expectations and needs of business and industry. Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1138– 1138d. Applicable Regulations: The Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) in 34 CFR parts 74, 75, 77, 79, 80, 82, 84, 85, 86, 97, 98, and 99.

Note: The regulations in 34 CFR part 86 apply to institutions of higher education (IHEs) only. II. Award Information Type of Award: Discretionary grants or cooperative agreements. Estimated Available Funds: $2,584,000. The Secretary expects that grantees will receive funding in FY 2008 for the full project period. Estimated Range of Awards: $400,000–$600,000 for a four-year project period. Estimated Average Size of Awards: $500,000 for a four-year project period. Maximum Award: We will reject any application that proposes a budget exceeding $600,000 for a four-year project period. The Assistant Secretary for Postsecondary Education may change the maximum amount through a notice published in the Federal Register. Estimated Number of Awards: 5–7. Note: The Department is not bound by any estimates in this notice. Project Period: Up to 48 months. III. Eligibility Information 1. Eligible Applicants: IHEs, other public and private nonprofit institutions and agencies, and combinations of these institutions and agencies. 2. Cost Sharing or Matching: This program does not require cost sharing or matching. IV. Application and Submission Information 1.
