This electronic announcement is a reminder that the application deadline is approaching for interested Title IV-eligible postsecondary institutions to apply for participation in the Second Chance Pell experiment.
On July 31, 2021 the Department published an Electronic Announcement (EA ID: GENERAL-21-46) announcing that letters of interest will be accepted from Title IV-eligible postsecondary institutions to participate, beginning with the 2022-2023 award year, in the Second Chance Pell experiment under the Experimental Sites Initiative (ESI), authorized under title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA).
Interested institutions are encouraged to review the Federal Register notice published on Aug. 3, 2015 and submit a letter of interest to ExperimentalSites@ed.gov, following the procedures outlined in the Electronic Announcement EA ID: GENERAL-21-46, no later than Thursday, Oct. 28, 2021 to receive priority consideration.
As mentioned in the Electronic Announcement, submitting a letter of interest does not commit the institution to participate in an experiment, nor does it commit the Department to approving an institution's request to participate.
If you have any questions about the application process or the Second Chance Pell experiment, please send an email to: ExperimentalSites@ed.gov.
