Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 22-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after October 4, 2021. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 22-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The long-range goal of the VIGRE program is to increase the number of well-prepared U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents who pursue careers in the mathematical sciences. A successful VIGRE project must:

1. integrate research with educational activities;
2. enhance interaction among undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and faculty members;
3. broaden the educational experiences of its students and postdoctoral associates to prepare them for a wide range of career opportunities; and
4. motivate more students to pursue an education in the mathematical sciences. With these goals in mind, each VIGRE proposal must present a coherent plan for the integration of:

  • a graduate traineeship program,
  • an undergraduate research experience program, and
  • a postdoctoral program.
