NSF Engineering offers support for student design projects


July 29, 2019

NSF announced a new supplemental funding opportunity to provide support for mentored, student-led design projects that are directly related to currently funded NSF awards from the Engineering Directorate. The Design Supplements also provide a way for principal investigators to expand the Broader Impact of their awards.

The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2020 budget of $8.3 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
