Supplements & Other Opportunities


SUPPLEMENTS


The use of existing supplement request mechanisms to engage underrepresented minorities and veterans, develop international collaboration, and consider career-life balance is encouraged.

Supplements can be made under an existing NSF award or within a proposal for a new or renewal NSF award. The Principal Investigator should consult with the Program Director of his/her particular NSF award.

Research Assistantships for High School Students (RAHSS): Supplemental Funding to Current BIO Awards to Broaden Participation in the Biological Sciences - These research experience supplements are intended to encourage talented high school students who are members of minority groups traditionally underrepresented in US science to participate in NSF-supported research projects.

   
bullet

Research Experience for Teachers (RET) - The purpose of these supplemental awards is to facilitate professional development of K-12 science teachers through research experience at the cutting edge of science. The Division is particularly interested in encouraging its researchers to build mutually rewarding partnerships with teachers at inner city schools and less well endowed school districts.

   
bullet Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Supplements - The purpose of these supplemental awards is to enable undergraduate students to participate in NSF supported research. They provide summer or calendar year stipends for the students and possibly modest supplies for the undergraduate project. The students must be US citizens or permanent residents and may not receive REU support after graduating.
 
   
bullet Research Opportunity Awards (ROA)- The purpose of these supplemental awards is to enable faculty from primarily undergraduate colleges to participate in NSF supported research projects. They can provide support (e.g. salary, per diem, and travel funds) for summer research or during sabbatical leave.
