SEDAR is a three step process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process utilizing workshops and webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is a data report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a Summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, HMS Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The items of discussion in the Review Workshop agenda are as follows: The Review Panel participants will review the stock assessment reports to determine if they are scientifically sound. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency.

SUMMARY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Full Text of Announcement jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The DHSI Program provides grants to assist Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the academic attainment of, Hispanic students. DHSI Program grants enable HSIs to expand and VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:43 May 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 enhance the academic offerings, program quality, faculty quality, and institutional stability of colleges and universities that are educating the majority of Hispanic college students and help large numbers of Hispanic students and low-income individuals complete postsecondary degrees. Background: Hispanic students are enrolling in postsecondary institutions at higher rates than ever before, yet their high enrollments are not translating to degree completion.1 HSIs have an opportunity to change the landscape by increasing the number of certificates and degrees attained by Hispanic and low-income students. Certificate and degree attainment is imperative to the thriving economy of the United States. HSIs’ high enrollment of Hispanic and low-income students enables them to serve as models for how best to meet the needs of Hispanic and low-income students. As such, this program supports HSIs that demonstrate a commitment to developing and/or enhancing a comprehensive plan that looks to identify and address the strengths and weaknesses of an institution’s enrollment, retention, support, and graduation rates of Hispanic and low-income students. HSIs interested in applying to this grant program can use the development of their comprehensive plan to examine the alignment of their mission and current strategic plan with the needs of the target population and surrounding community to develop, enhance, and implement leadership, practice, and policies that best promote student success. Moreover, HSIs can use their plans as road maps to help all students, especially those with the highest needs, find exciting pathways to employment and career advancement. To this end, this competition includes two competitive preference priorities that are designed to promote student success. Priorities: This notice contains two competitive preference priorities. The first competitive preference priority is from the authorized activities for this program in section 503 of the HEA (20 U.S.C. 1101b). The second competitive preference priority is from the Secretary’s Final Supplemental Priorities and Definitions for Discretionary Grant Programs, published in the Federal Register on March 2, 2018 (83 FR 9096) (Supplemental Priorities). Competitive Preference Priorities: For FY 2019 and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of 1 Digest of Education Statistics 2017, January 2019, https://nces.ed.gov/pubs2018/2018070.pdf. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 unfunded applications from this competition, these priorities are competitive preference priorities. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(2)(i), we award an application up to 10 additional points, depending on how well the application meets one of these priorities. Applicants may only respond to one of the priorities, for a total of up to 10 additional points. These priorities are: Competitive Preference Priority 1 (Up to 10 Additional Points) Projects that are designed to expand the number of Hispanic and other underrepresented graduate and professional students that can be served by the institution by expanding courses and institutional resources. Competitive Preference Priority 2 (Up to 10 Additional Points) Projects that support instruction in personal financial literacy, knowledge of markets and economics, knowledge of higher education financing and repayment (e.g., college savings and student loans), or other skills aimed at building personal financial understanding and responsibility. Definitions: The following definitions are from 34 CFR 77.1 and apply to the selection criteria in this notice: Baseline means the starting point from which performance is measured and targets are set. Budget period means an interval of time into which a project period is divided for budgetary purposes. Demonstrates a rationale means a key project component included in the project’s logic model is informed by research or evaluation findings that suggest the project component is likely to improve relevant outcomes. Department means the U.S. Department of Education. Experimental study means a study that is designed to compare outcomes between two groups of individuals (such as students) that are otherwise equivalent except for their assignment to either a treatment group receiving a project component or a control group that does not. Randomized controlled trials, regression discontinuity design studies, and single-case design studies are the specific types of experimental studies that, depending on their design and implementation (e.g., sample attrition in randomized controlled trials and regression discontinuity design studies), can meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) standards without reservations as described in the WWC Handbook: (i) A randomized controlled trial employs random assignment of, for E:\FR\FM\15MYN1.SGM 15MYN1
