SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title of Collection: Quantitative Evaluation of the ADVANCE Program. OMB Control No.: 3145–0209. Abstract Abstract: The ADVANCE Program was established by the National Science Foundation in 2001 to address the underrepresentation and inadequate advancement of women on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) faculties at postsecondary institutions. The evaluation being conducted by the Urban Institute focuses on the implementation of ADVANCE projects at institutions throughout the nation. The three major funding components—institutional transformation, leadership, and partnership awards—as well as all cohorts funded that completed their funding cycles will be included. The study will rely on a thorough review of project documents, telephone interviews with all grantees, and detailed case studies at selected sites. The goal of the evaluation will be to identify models of implementation and, depending on outcomes by model, conduct case studies at selected institutions to understand how ADVANCE models operate and may be effective in differing settings. Respondents: Faculty and staff at institutions of higher education awarded an ADVANCE grant from NSF. Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 151 (total). E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1
