Grant support for computational & data science REU supplements

Researchers with existing NSF grants or applying for new or continuing grants may apply for a NSF Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) supplement to support up to two undergraduate research assistants. If your grant has a computational or data science research focus and you wish to participate in the iCER/CMSE Advanced Computational Research Experiences for Students (ACRES) Summer REU, please contact the iCER/CMSE ACRES REU PI, Dr. Brian O'Shea to discuss your participation. In addition, iCER can provide you with the following documentation: 

  • A description of student activities, including research and technical training support provided through the iCER/CMSE ACRES REU.

  • Participant support budget estimate and budget justification. Suggested allowances for student stipend and othe support costs are $9K/student.

  • Applying for new and continuing grants, Dr. Brian O'Shea can provide a letter of support

  • Existing NSF grant holders, contact your Cognizant Program Officer. Send one-page project summary including intellectual merit and broader impact for feedback to the Cognizant Program Director. 

Important Dates

  • For REU supplements, you will need to provide the ACRES team with a student research project description no later than September 1st of the year prior to the summer ACRES will be hosting your REU students.
