Note: This supplemental opportunity is only eligible for Phase II grantees.
The Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) program supports the active involvement of K-12 teachers and community college faculty in engineering research in order to bring knowledge of engineering and technological innovation into their classrooms. There are two mechanisms for support of in-service and pre-service K-12 teachers and/or community college faculty research: (1) RET Supplements and (2) RET Sites. RET Supplements are the concern of this document. In the context of the SBIR/STTR Program, sup plements may be requested for ongoing NSF SBIR-STTR-funded research projects. It is permissible to apply for support for up to two teachers per project year.
