DMS VIGRE Awards

The long-range goal of the Grants for Vertical Integration of Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences (VIGRE) activity of the Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) is to increase the number of well-prepared U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents who pursue careers in the mathematical sciences. The VIGRE program is intended to help stimulate and implement permanent positive changes in education and training within the mathematical sciences in the U.S. The focus of the program is the educational experience of students and postdoctoral associates. Broad faculty commitment is necessary. Broad dissemination of VIGRE site activities, experiences, and insights is critical to achieve a positive impact at the national level on the mathematical sciences community. Effective mentoring is considered crucial to successful VIGRE activities.

VIGRE provides funds to support:
  • postdoctoral associate positions with enhanced opportunities for research,
  • graduate research traineeships, and

  • research experiences for undergraduates.
A successful VIGRE project must:
  • integrate research with educational activities;
  • enhance interaction among undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and faculty members;
  • broaden the educational experiences of its students and postdoctoral associates to prepare them for a wide range of career opportunities; and
  • motivate more students to pursue an education in the mathematical sciences.

Award size is from $400,000 to $1,000,000 per year; awards are granted for three years, with a two year extension possible. For more information, see the DMS VIGRE solicitation.

Beginning in Fiscal Year 2004, VIGRE is one component of the DMS activity on Enhancing the Mathematical Sciences Workforce in the 21st Century (EMSW21). The EMSW21 solicitation can be found at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5732
