SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program
    OMB Control #: 2125-0617.
    Background: The Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program is 
comprised of two programs, the Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship and 
the National Highway Institute (NHI). The purpose of the Eisenhower 
Transportation Fellowship is to advance transportation education and 
research, and attract qualified students to the field of 
transportation. The Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship allows for the 
collection and analysis of vital program information from student 
transportation education programs, also serving as a management tool to 
measure program performance and evaluate effectiveness in meeting 
Federal intent and workforce development common goals and objectives. 
An application form is used to collect basic information from the 
student to determine eligibility and qualifications for fellowship.
    The NHI calls for the development and delivery of courses for the 
transportation community and requires the involvement and satisfaction 
measurement of transportation partners. One vital component involved in 
reaching those goals is providing training pertaining to highway 
activities, making sure that professionals and members of the public

[[Page 46675]]

have access to the best, most accurate information. Towards this goal, 
the NHI develops and implements applicable training programs. To manage 
this increasingly complex task and to make the training process more 
accessible and useful, NHI has automated an online training management 
tool--the NHI Web Portal. The training evaluation and registration 
forms collect basic participant data for record keeping and basic 
course and instructor evaluation information for customer feedback 
about what NHI is doing well and what we need to improve.
    Respondents: Approximately 200 students submit applications for the 
Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship and approximately 20,000 students 
for the NHI.
    Frequency: The Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship frequency is 
annually. The NHI is by learning session.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated burden to 
complete the application for the Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship 
is 3 hrs, 600 hrs annually. The estimated burden to complete each 
training evaluation and registration for the NHI form is 3 minutes, 
1000 hrs annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 1,600 hours 
annually. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any 
aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the 
proposed collection is necessary for the FHWA's performance; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the 
quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) 
ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of 
electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected 
information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in 
the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.

    Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48.

     Issued on: July 26, 2013.

Information Collection Officer.
