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 National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2019, its budget is $8.1 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
