Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Programs

ACTION: Notice of the 2008-2009 award year deadline dates for the
campus-based programs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Secretary announces the 2008-2009 award year deadline
dates for the submission of requests and documents from postsecondary
institutions for the campus-based programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study (FWS), and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) programs are collectively known as the campus-based programs.
    The Federal Perkins Loan Program encourages institutions to make
low-interest, long-term loans to needy undergraduate and graduate
students to help pay for their education.
    The FWS Program encourages the part-time employment of needy
undergraduate and graduate students to help pay for their education and
to involve the students in community service activities.
    The FSEOG Program encourages institutions to provide grants to
exceptionally needy undergraduate students to help pay for their cost
of education.
    The Federal Perkins Loan, FWS, and FSEOG programs are authorized by
parts E and C, and part A, subpart 3, respectively, of title IV of the
Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.
    Throughout the year, in its ``Dear Colleague'' letters, the
Department will continue to provide additional information for the
individual deadline dates listed, via the Information for Financial Aid
Professionals (IFAP) Web site at http://www.ifap.ed.gov.
    Deadline Dates: The following table provides the 2008-2009 award
year deadline dates for the submission of applications, reports, and
waiver requests for the campus-based programs. Institutions must meet
the established deadline dates to ensure consideration for funding or a
waiver, as appropriate.
