RAHSS Background

Note: This supplemental opportunity is only eligible for Phase II grantees.

The Research Assistantship Supplements for High School Students (RA) supports active research participation by high schools students in the SBIR/STTR Program. This opportunity broadens the participation of women and minority students in academic and small business research to foster interest in pursuing science, technology, and engineering studies at the college level. RAHSS projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing advanced applied research projects. High school student participants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. It is permissible to apply for support for up to two students per project year.

Submission of applications for REU/RET/RAHSS supplements is encouraged early in the fiscal year, which begins October 1, but there is no fixed deadline for submission.
