> REU SUPPLEMENT REQUEST DEADLINE for CISE/ITR is March 15, 2002
> Dear Awardee:
> As the principal investigator on an active National Science Foundation
> award funded by the Information Technology Research (ITR) Program, you may
> be able to supplement your award under the Research Experiences for
> Undergraduates (REU) program. Awards are made for no more than 2
> students per PI. Some exceptions may be considered. Please note:
> * Priority will be given to requests received before March 15, 2002.
> * The REU program aims to provide appropriate and valuable educational
> experiences for undergraduate students through research participation.
> * REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research
> programs or in research projects specially designed for the purpose.
> * NSF is particularly interested in increasing the participation in
> research of women, under-represented minorities, and persons with
> disabilities. REU projects are strongly encouraged to involve students who
> are members of these groups. Under-represented minorities are
> African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Native Pacific
> * All REU students must be US citizens or permanent residents.
> Requests should state explicitly that this rule will be applied in
> selection of participants.
> * Award decisions for REU funding will be made based on the
> following considerations:
> * Is there a clear plan for a meaningful research experience?
> * Does the project lack funds to hire the (undergraduate) student(s)
> or is the program already well-funded?
> * Have members of under-represented groups been targeted as
> * Will the student(s) have an opportunity to work closely with senior
> Details of the REU program and the proposal requirements are included in
> the REU announcement, NSF 01-121. You are encouraged to read this document
> carefully. You may view this at the following web address:
> A request for a supplement to an existing NSF award must be submitted via
> FastLane at the following web address:
> https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/fastlane.htm. Select the Supplemental
> Funding Request Option. This is a new option that is now available since
> the instructions were printed in the REU Program announcement.
> The Investigator enters the description of the REU activity (as specified
> above and limited to 3 pages), including a justification of the funds
> requested for student support and their proposed use, and prepares a
> budget (NSF Form 1030). All student costs are entered under line F as
> participant support costs. An administrative allowance (limited to 25% of
> the participant stipend support only) is allowed for REU awards in lieu of
> indirect costs (enter at line I of Form 1030). The request is then
> forwarded to the institution's Sponsored Projects Office for submission to
> In the case of REU Supplement requests submitted as part of a proposal for
> new or renewal support, the description of the REU activity (as specified
> above and limited to 3 pages) is entered in FastLane in the section for
> Supplementary Documentation. The budget for the REU Supplement is included
> in the yearly project budget. All student costs are entered under line F
> as participant support costs. An administrative allowance (limited to 25%
> of the participant stipend support only) is allowed for the REU portion in
> lieu of indirect costs (added into line I of Form 1030). The budget
> justification for the proposal must contain a separate explanation of the
> REU Supplement request, with the proposed student costs itemized and
> justified and a total given for the items plus administrative allowance.
> If the intention is to engage students as technicians, not as REU research
> participants, then any requested funds would be entered on line B4
> (Undergraduate Students) of Form 1030.
> As a guide to budget development, student stipends for summer projects are
> expected to be comparable to those of REU Site participants, typically at
> least $300 per week beyond other participant support costs per student,
> with academic-year stipends comparable on a pro rata basis. Total costs
> are expected to be about $6,000 per student.
> Results from any REU Supplement activity must be included in the annual
> progress report of the award. The NSF FastLane project reporting system
> calls for information on participants and on publications and products, as
> well as discussion of activities and contributions in education and human
> resource development.
> SPECIAL NOTE: ALL REU Supplement Requests MUST come via Fastlane. If you
> have already submitted a paper copy REU Supplement request to the program,
> you must resubmit via fastlane.
