Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR 200). Please be advised that the guidelines contained in NSF 15-1 apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The Undergraduate Mentoring in Environmental Biology (UMEB) Program is designed to enable institutions to create programs that will encourage undergraduate students, especially those from under-represented groups, to pursue a career in environmental biology. The UMEB Program supports projects that provide year-round support for undergraduate students to gain research experience in environmental biology. Environmental biology is broadly defined to include areas of research focusing on organisms as they evolve, interact with each other, and/or interact with their environment, from perspectives that range from molecular to ecosystem levels. Environmental biology also includes molecular studies of environment-organism interactions and environmental genomics. Field experience must be part of the research experience. Projects should emphasize factors that encourage and enable members of under-represented groups to enter, and remain in, environmental biology. The UMEB Program now requires submission of a preliminary proposal.


This program provides educational opportunities for  Undergraduate Students . Individuals interested in applying for funding should see the program guidelines above.
