    CFDA No. 84.116J, 84.116M, and 84.116N.

    Withdrawal of Notices inviting applications for new awards for 
Fiscal Year (FY) 2011; European Union-United States Atlantis (Atlantis) 
Program; U.S.-Brazil Higher Education Consortia (U.S.-Brazil) Program; 
and the North American Mobility in Higher Education (NAM) Program.

SUMMARY: On April 1, 2011 (76 FR 18198) (Atlantis); March 29, 2011 (76 
FR 17391) (U.S.-Brazil); and March 25, 2011 (76 FR 16743) (NAM), the 
Department published in the Federal Register notices inviting 
applications for new awards for each of the programs identified. On 
April 15, 2011, the President signed Public Law 112-10, the Department 
of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, which 
substantially reduced funds available for the Department's Higher 
Education account. This account is the source of funding for grants in 
these programs under the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary 
Education. Therefore, no new grants will be made under the Atlantis, 
U.S.-Brazil, or NAM programs in FY 2011. As such, the Department 
withdraws these notices inviting applications for new awards for FY 
2011.

    Program Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1138-1138d.
