Mentor Summer REU Students

REU Supplements

For researchers with National Science Foundation grant funding, adding a “Research Experiences for Undergraduates" (REU) Supplemental grant is a great way to obtain funding to support involving undergraduate students in your research project. According to the National Science Foundation (NSF) requests for an REU Supplement may be included within a proposal for a new or renewal NSF grant or cooperative agreement or as a supplement to an ongoing NSF-funded project. An REU Supplement request is handled by the NSF program officer for the underlying research grant.
