For Faculty

The REU Program Announcement, which can be found under Program Guidelines on the REU Program Overview page provides guidance on how to apply for an REU Supplement or for an REU Site. The REU program seeks to expand student participation in all kinds of research - whether disciplinary, interdisciplinary, or educational in focus - encompassing efforts by individual investigators, groups, centers, national facilities, and others. The program seeks to attract a diversified pool of talented students into careers in science and engineering and to help ensure that they receive the best education possible.

A request 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.

For an REU Site, a formal proposal is submitted by the annual deadline, which is August 17 in 2004. REU Sites are funded by research divisions/directorates throughout the Foundation, with the point-of-contact for each given on the web page, REU Points of Contact at NSF.

For FastLane submission requirements, please refer to the checklist (PDF | Word) for site proposals. For FastLane user support, please call 1-800-673-6188, 7 AM to 9 PM, Monday through Friday.
