Department of Education - Title
III Update/FIPSE Information
It is expected that the Title III—Strengthening Institutions Program grant will be due sometime
during mid-April. We are confident that we will be able to complete the proposal in due time,
along with a comprehensive review of the proposal by a Title III program consultant. This will
definitely help us be more competitive.
Below you will find information about the FIPSE program. This program is very special in that
it is the only federal program that will support INNOVATIVE projects in ANY discipline. It is a
very competitive program, but the estimated range of awards is between $400,000—$600,000
for a four-year project. So, if you have an innovative project you would like to develop for your
department or college, please let me know so we can get started on the proposal. The due date is
NOT known yet, but it is suggested that we begin preparing our application. Once the federal
notice of the program comes out in the Federal Register, there will likely only be 30 days before
the due date to prepare the proposal. Planning is key!
