[35.01] External Funding of Undergraduate Research Projects

E.D. Friel (NSF)

The National Science Foundation supports undergraduate research through a variety of programs and activities. Each year roughly 300 undergraduates are supported through either NSF research grants of faculty sponsors, Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) sites, or supplemental funds to research grants. While the mechanisms of providing support vary, the goal is the same to provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to experience and contribute to current, topical research.
