SUMMARY: OMB No. 0915–0149—Revision Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection: Public Comment Request Information Collection Request Title: Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students Program OMB No. 0915–0149—Revision AGENCY: ACTION: Information Collection Request Title: Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students Program Health Resources and Services Administration jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Activity Abstract: HRSA seeks to update the Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students (SDS) program-specific form to collect 3 years of student data instead of 1 year of student data from SDS program applicants. This will assist the agency in making funding decisions for SDS program awards. The form will reflect programmatic changes to the SDS program, made after consideration of the PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 comments received in response to the request for public comment, published at 84 FR 23571, which will be finalized in the forthcoming SDS Policy Change Federal Register Notice. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The purpose of the SDS Program is to make grant awards to eligible schools to provide scholarships to full-time, financially needy students from disadvantaged backgrounds enrolled in health professions programs. To qualify for participation in the SDS program, a school must be carrying out a program for recruiting and retaining students from disadvantaged backgrounds, including students who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups (section 737(d)(1)(B) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act). To meet this requirement, a school must show that at least 20 percent of the school’s full-time enrolled students and graduates are from a disadvantaged background. HRSA previously required schools to demonstrate this percentage by submitting 1 year of data; a school must now provide this data for the most recent 3-year period. The proposed revisions to the SDS program-specific form will require applicants to provide the percentage of full-time enrolled students and graduates from a disadvantaged background over a 3-year period, consistent with this policy change. An additional change to the SDS program is that a 3-year average, instead of a 1-year average, will be used to calculate priority points, which are provided to eligible schools based on the proportion of graduating students going into primary care, the proportion of underrepresented minority students, and the proportion of graduates working in medically underserved communities (section 737(c) of the PHS Act). The proposed revisions to the SDS programspecific form will require applicants to E:\FR\FM\08AUN1.SGM 08AUN1 38999 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 153 / Thursday, August 8, 2019 / Notices provide a 3-year average for these percentages, consistent with this policy change, as opposed to the 1 year of data previously required. Likely Respondents: The respondents are institutions that apply for SDS program awards. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

Information Collection Request Title: Scholarships for Disadvantaged 
Students Program

OMB No. 0915-0149--Revision

    Abstract: HRSA seeks to update the Scholarships for Disadvantaged 
Students (SDS) program-specific form to collect 3 years of student data 
instead of 1 year of student data from SDS program applicants. This 
will assist the agency in making funding decisions for SDS program 
awards. The form will reflect programmatic changes to the SDS program, 
made after consideration of the comments received in response to the 
request for public comment, published at 84 FR 23571, which will be 
finalized in the forthcoming SDS Policy Change Federal Register Notice.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The purpose of the SDS 
Program is to make grant awards to eligible schools to provide 
scholarships to full-time, financially needy students from 
disadvantaged backgrounds enrolled in health professions programs. To 
qualify for participation in the SDS program, a school must be carrying 
out a program for recruiting and retaining students from disadvantaged 
backgrounds, including students who are members of racial and ethnic 
minority groups (section 737(d)(1)(B) of the Public Health Service 
(PHS) Act). To meet this requirement, a school must show that at least 
20 percent of the school's full-time enrolled students and graduates 
are from a disadvantaged background. HRSA previously required schools 
to demonstrate this percentage by submitting 1 year of data; a school 
must now provide this data for the most recent 3-year period. The 
proposed revisions to the SDS program-specific form will require 
applicants to provide the percentage of full-time enrolled students and 
graduates from a disadvantaged background over a 3-year period, 
consistent with this policy change.
    An additional change to the SDS program is that a 3-year average, 
instead of a 1-year average, will be used to calculate priority points, 
which are provided to eligible schools based on the proportion of 
graduating students going into primary care, the proportion of 
underrepresented minority students, and the proportion of graduates 
working in medically underserved communities (section 737(c) of the PHS 
Act). The proposed revisions to the SDS program-specific form will 
require applicants to

[[Page 38999]]

provide a 3-year average for these percentages, consistent with this 
policy change, as opposed to the 1 year of data previously required.
    Likely Respondents: The respondents are institutions that apply for 
SDS program awards.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.

    From the last submission, the number of respondents has been 
updated with more recent application figures. There were 400 
applications received for the 2012 application cycle and 323 
applications from the 2016 cycle.
    HRSA specifically requests comments on (1) the necessity and

performance of the agency's functions; (2) the accuracy of the 
estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity
