SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: DOT-FHWA Summer Transportation Internship Program for 
diverse Groups (STIPDG).
    Background: 23 U.S.C. 140 (b) Section 5204--Training and Education/
Surface Transportation Workforce Development, Training, and Education 
states that subject to project approval by the Secretary, a State may 
obligate funds apportioned to the State for five primary core programs 
(STP, NHS, Bridge, IM, CMAQ), workforce development, training, and 
education, including student internships; university or community 
college support; and outreach to develop interest and promote 
participation in surface transportation careers. The Summer 
Transportation Internship Program for Diverse Groups (STIPDG) is an 
important part of U.S. DOT's intermodal effort to promote the entry of 
women, persons with disabilities, and members of diverse groups into 
transportation careers where traditionally these groups have been 
under-represented. Accordingly, The Federal Highway

[[Page 60096]]

Administrations' Office of Innovative Program Delivery will support the 
STIPDG by working closely with FHWA's Office of Human Resources, 
specifically the Corporate Recruitment and Career Entry Group, which 
has responsibility for administering the program, to include 
participation and placement of college students, DOT-wide, and for all 
occupational disciplines, to include summer intern placement DOT-wide 
and nationwide. The STIPDG anticipates accepting approximately 500 
applications each year and placing an estimated 60-120 undergraduate, 
graduate, and law students in transportation-related, non-
administrative, technical, hands-on assignments with a Federal or State 
mentor providing on-the- job training. The STIPDG will provide college 
students with an opportunity to work on current transportation-related 
topics and issues identified in, or directly pertaining to, the current 
DOT Strategic Plan. The STIPDG is open to all qualified applicants 
regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political 
affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, age, 
membership in an employee organization, or other non-merit factor.
    The STIPDG is open to all applicants based on the eligibility 
requirements that follow and based on the merit of the ``Required 
Documents'' listed in bulleted-format below:
    1. Applicants must be currently enrolled in degree-granting 
programs of study at accredited U.S. institutions of higher education 
recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
    2. Undergraduate applicants must be juniors or seniors for the fall 
following the summer internship. Undergraduate applicants from Junior, 
Tribal, or Community Colleges must have completed their first year.
    3. Law Applicants must be entering their second or third year of 
law school in the fall following the summer internship.
    4. Applicants who are scheduled to graduate during the coming 
spring or summer semesters are not eligible for consideration for the 
STIPDG unless: (1) They have been accepted for graduate school 
enrollment; (2) they have been accepted for enrollment at an 
institution of higher education; or (3) their acceptance is pending. In 
all instances, the applicant must submit with their completed 
application packages, documentation (with the school's logo) reflecting 
their status. (There will be no exceptions.)
    5. Former STIPDG interns may apply but will not receive 
preferential consideration.
    6. Applicants will be evaluated based on the ``completeness of the 
application and the Required Documents'' listed below. Priority will be 
given to those with GPA's of 3.0 or better (for the Major and/or 
cumulatively).
    7. Applicants must be available and able to participate in the 
entire 10-week program.
    Respondents: Approximately 500 applicants consisting of 
undergraduate, graduate and law students. All applicants must be U.S. 
Citizens.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately two hours to 
complete and submit the application.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 1000 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.

for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
