DOED Cancels 2011 FIPSE Comprehensive Program

The U.S. Department of Education announced that the fiscal year 2011 Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) Comprehensive Program has been cancelled because “Congressional action on the FY 2011 budget substantially reduced funds available.” The program application deadline had been May 23, 2011.

The FIPSE Comprehensive Program supports reforms, innovations, and significant improvements of postsecondary education that respond to problems of national significance and serve as national models. The FY 2011 program announcement had estimated “$20,347,000 for awards under this competition. The actual level of funding, if any, depends on final congressional action.”
