Title of Collection: Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Certification Form. OMB Approval Number: 3145–0247. Expiration Date of Current Approval: July 31, 2021. Type of Request: Intent to renew an information collection. Abstract: To enhance the quality of undergraduate STEM education at Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), the National Science Foundation (NSF) established the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI Program), in response to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Public Law 115–31) and the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act (Public Law 114–329). The lead institution submitting a proposal to the HSI Program must be an HSI as defined by law in section 502 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1101a) (http://legcounsel.house.gov/Comps/ HEA65_CMD.pdf). Hence there is a need for institutions to self-certify via an HSI Certification Form. The HSI Program includes a specific track that provides a funding opportunity for institutions that are new to NSF[5] or are Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs [6]), including community colleges. PUIs are ‘‘accredited colleges and universities (including two-year community colleges) that award Associates degrees, Bachelor’s degrees, and/or Master’s degrees in NSF-supported fields, but have awarded 20 or fewer Ph.D./D.Sci. degrees in all NSF-supported fields during the combined previous two academic years.’’ PUI definition obtained from https://www.nsf.gov/ funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5518. Hence there is a need for institutions to provide a self-certification of PUI eligibility for this track. The following language is used: Certification of PUI Eligibility. A Certification of PUI Eligibility, following the format below and executed by an Authorized Organizational Representative, must be included in PUI requests (Planning or Pilot Projects (PPP) only). A current, signed Certification, included on institutional letterhead, should be scanned and included as a PDF file. E:\FR\FM\06APN1.SGM 06APN1
