Nsf scholarships in science technology engineering and mathematics s stem
NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM)

  • Provides grants to institutions of higher education to support scholarships for academically talented, financially needy students, enabling them to enter the workforce following completion of an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate level degree in science and engineering disciplines.

  • Grantee institutions are responsible for selecting scholarship recipients, reporting demographic information about student scholars, and managing the S-STEM project at the institution.

Research in disabilities education rde
Research in Disabilities Education (RDE) Mathematics (S-STEM)

  • Seeks to broaden the participation and achievement of people with disabilities in all fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and associated professional careers.

  • Particular emphasis is placed on increasing the number of students with disabilities successfully completing quality associate, undergraduate and graduate degrees in STEM and increasing the number of students with disabilities entering the professional STEM workforce.

Research experiences for undergraduates reu
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Mathematics (S-STEM)

  • Supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by NSF.

  • Projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.

  • Two mechanisms for support of student research:

    • REU Sites are based on independent proposals to initiate and conduct projects that engage a number of students in research.

    • REU Supplements may be requested for ongoing NSF-funded research projects or may be included as a component of proposals for new or renewal NSF grants or cooperative agreements.

Research initiation grants rig
Research Initiation Grants (RIG) Mathematics (S-STEM)

  • Increase the diversity of researchers who apply for and receive BIO funding to initiate research programs early in their careers.

  • Expand the population of role models who will interact with an increasingly diverse student population, the workforce of the future .

  • Increase the number of scientists at minority serving institutions actively and competitively engaged in research as independent investigators, thereby creating new research opportunities for students from under-represented groups.

  • Fund biological research projects that use innovative ways to attract and retain members of under-represented groups to careers in biology.
