Burden Hours: 599. Needs and Uses: This request is for a new information collection. Since its establishment in 1970 under the Department of Commerce, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s primary goals are to understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment, to conserve and manage coastal and marine resources, and to serve the nation’s economic, social, and environmental needs. One of NOAA’s staff offices, the Office of Education (OEd), also serves a critical function as the nation’s primary educator on matters related to the ocean, coastal resources, the atmosphere, and climate. One of the ways NOAA fulfills its national duty is by providing educational resources and scholarship opportunities for future scholars. The Ernest F. Hollings Undergraduate Scholarship Program (HUSP) was established in 2005; since then, it has provided support to approximately 1,144 undergraduate students. This scholarship opportunity provides 2 academic years of tuition support (up to $8,000 per year) and a 10-week paid internship with a NOAA mentor to competitive undergraduate scholars in NOAA-related major fields of study. The HUSP also provides undergraduates with additional supports such as living expenses, travel stipends, and conference allowances. The main goals of HUSP include increasing undergraduate training and research in NOAA sciences; recruiting and preparing students for careers as public servants and environmental science educators; and building public understanding of and support for environmental stewardship issues (i.e., increasing environmental literacy). The Educational Partnership Program (EPP) comprises three unique components: the Undergraduate Scholarship Program (USP), the Graduate Studies Program (GSP), and four Cooperative Science Centers (CSCs). USP is a scholarship opportunity that provides recipients with hands-on research and training in NOAA-related sciences and provides scholars the opportunity to gain valuable work experience at NOAA facilities. To date, USP has funded 175 scholars. GSP is similar, and supported (funded 59 students) graduate students interested in pursuing NOAA missioncritical fields by providing them with work experience and hands-on training in NOAA-related research fields. The CSCs’ overarching goal is to increase underrepresentation in STEM and E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1

Postponement of Final Determination

    Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), provides that a final determination may be postponed until not 
later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the 
preliminary determination if, in the event of an affirmative 
preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is made by 
exporters who account for a significant proportion of exports of the 
subject merchandise, or in the event of a negative preliminary 
determination, a request for such postponement is made by the 
petitioner. Section 351.210(e)(2) of the Department's regulations 
requires that requests by respondents for postponement of a final 
determination be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional 
measures from a four-month period to a period not more than six months 
in duration.
    In accordance with section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(2)(ii), because (1) our preliminary determination was 
affirmative; (2) the requesting producers or exporters account for a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise from their 
respective country; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, we 
are postponing the

final determination until no later than 135 days after the publication 
of the Preliminary Determination (i.e., to October 31, 2015) and 
extending the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period 
not greater than six months. Accordingly, we will issue our final 
determination no later than 135 days after the date of publication of 
the Preliminary Determination, pursuant to section 735(a)(2) of the 
Act. Because October 31, 2015, is a Saturday, the actual due date for 
the final determination of this LTFV investigation will be Monday, 
November 2, 2015.\5\
