    OMB Control Number: 1840-0753.
    Type of Review: A revision of an existing information collection.
    Respondents/Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments; 
Individuals or Households.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1,000.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 1,000.
    Abstract: In order to implement the requirements of the statute, 
confidential information on scholarship recipients will be collected. 
Specifically, the institution of higher education (IHE) will report to 
ED the name, address, Social Security Number, and date of birth for 
each recipient at the time a scholarship award is made. These data will 
be used to track students after the completion of their studies (or 
withdrawal from the program) to ascertain whether they are fulfilling 
the teaching requirement of their award.
    Any data that is required and maintained by ED itself will be 
maintained in accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. To 
assure that sensitive data about scholarship recipients are not 
compromised, all data--whether submitted electronically or as hard 
copy--will be maintained in a secure location. Access to these data 
will be limited only to staff who are directly responsible for working 
with the Teacher Quality Enhancement (TQE) Program and this information 
is only available onsite at the TQE office via desktop computer.
    As noted in the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), the authority 
for collecting the requested information from and about TQE scholarship 
recipients is Title II, Section 204(e) of the Higher Education Act of 
1965, as amended, and 31 U.S.C. Chapter 37. IHE students are advised 
that participation in the Teacher Quality Enhancement Grants 
scholarship program is voluntary and that giving the Department their 
Social Security Numbers (SSNs) is voluntary, but they must provide the 
requested information, including their SSNs, to participate. The 
information will be used to ensure that recipients of scholarships 
provided with funds under Title II of the Higher Education Act 
subsequently: (1) Complete a teacher education program and teach in a 
high-need school of a high-need local educational agency for a period 
of time equivalent to the period for which the recipient received 
scholarship assistance; or (2) repay the amount of the scholarship. The 
information in students' records may be disclosed to third parties as 
authorized under routine uses in the appropriate systems of records, 
either on a case-by-case basis, or, if the Department has complied with 
the computer matching requirements of the Privacy Act, under a computer 
matching agreement.
