on which the project focuses (e.g., lower-level undergraduate courses, 
upper-level undergraduate courses), characteristics of the organization 
submitting the proposal, special audiences (if any) that the project 
would target (e.g., women, minorities, persons with disabilities), 
strategic foci (if any) of the project (e.g., research on teaching and 
learning, international activities, integration of research and 
education), and the number of students and faculty at different 
educational levels who would benefit from the project.
    Respondents: Investigators who submit proposals to NSF's Division 
of Undergraduate Education.
    Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 2,500.
