Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) (NSF 05-592)
Supplements and Sites


Supports active research participation by undergraduate students


1700 to 1800 awards are to be awarded. This estimate includes approximately 150 new Site awards and 1,600 new Supplement awards each year. Approximately $33,000,000 will be available in FY2006. This estimate includes both Sites and Supplements, pending availability of funds.


REU Sites -- September 7, 2005; August 17, 2006
REU Supplements -- Varies with the research program




The goal of the REU program is to provide appropriate and valuable educational experiences for undergraduate students through research participation. REU projects feature high quality interaction of students with faculty and/or other research mentors and access to appropriate facilities and professional development opportunities. Projects may be carried out during the summer months, during the academic year, or both. NSF is particularly interested in increasing participation in research of women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities. Undergraduate student participants supported with NSF funds in either Supplements or Sites must be US citizens or permanent residents.

REU Supplements:

REU Supplements may be included in proposals for new or renewal NSF grants or cooperative agreements or as supplements to an existing NSF award.

Typically support is provided for one or two undergraduate students; however, Centers or large research efforts may request support for a number of students commensurate with the size and nature of the project. Exceptions may also be made for training additional qualified students who are members of underrepresented groups. For guidance concerning REU Supplements, please consult with the NSF Program Director of the particular research program.

REU Sites:

REU Sites are based on independent proposals to initiate and conduct undergraduate research participation projects for a number of students.

REU Sites projects must have a well-defined common focus that enables a cohort experience for students. Projects may be based in a single discipline or academic department or be based on interdisciplinary or multi-departmentresearch opportunities with a strong intellectual focus. REU Sites are>encouraged to involve students in research who might not otherwise have the opportunity, particularly those from institutions where research programs are limited. As a result, a significant fraction of the student participants should come from outside the host institution.
