SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On June 4, 2014, the Department of Education published two notices 
in the Federal Register (79 FR 32241 (State Grants) and 79 FR 32249 
(Partnership Grants)) inviting applications for FY 2014 State and 
partnership new awards under the GEAR UP Program.
    In response to the notices, we received a number of high-quality 
applications. Many applications that received high scores by peer 
reviewers were not selected for funding.
    To conserve funding that would have been required for a peer review 
of new grant applications submitted under this program and instead use 
those limited funds to support grant activities, the FY 2015 GEAR UP 
grantees were selected from the State and partnership slates developed 
during the FY 2014 competition using the priority, selection criteria, 
and application requirements referenced in the June 2014 notice. A 
number of high-quality applications from the 2014 competition were not 
funded in 2014 or 2015. We will select new grantees in FY 2016 from the 
existing State and partnership slates developed in FY 2014 for the same 
reasons and in the same manner as we did in FY 2015.
