In October 2018, NSF implemented the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) email changes required by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to improve email security. Some email routing practices (such as auto-forwarding to personal email accounts and sending messages through third-party providers) may cause messages to be flagged as potentially fraudulent by DMARC security checks and blocked. If your email is auto-forwarded to another account, such as a personal email account, you may not receive emails from NSF in that forwarded account. More information about DMARC and email delivery from NSF.

Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 19-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after February 25, 2019. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 19-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The goal of Computational Science Training for Undergraduates in the Mathematical Sciences (CSUMS) is to enhance computational aspects of the education and training of undergraduate students in the mathematical sciences -- mathematics and statistics -- and to better prepare these students to pursue careers and graduate study in fields that require integrated strengths in computation and the mathematical sciences. The core of the activity is long-term research experiences for cohorts of at least six undergraduates. Projects must focus on research topics that require interplay between computation and mathematics or statistics. They should expose students to contemporary mathematics, statistics, and computation, addressed with modern research tools and methods. That is, projects must be genuine research experiences rather than rehearsals of research methods. Interdisciplinary projects are encouraged, and appropriate mentorship from the disciplines involved is welcomed. In addition, we expect that projects will strengthen the research and education capacity, infrastructure, and culture of the participating institutions. To this end, we welcome projects that create models for education in the mathematical sciences and influence the direction of academic programs for a broad range of students. CSUMS is a joint effort of the Education and Human Resources (EHR) and the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) directorates at the National Science Foundation (NSF).
