Research Opportunities for Undergraduates
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. NOTE: This is a HUGE program, with funding in excess of $68 million, and an expected 1800 awards! Deadline: 24 May 2013(and fourth Friday in May thereafter).
NSF's Education and Special Programs
This grant category includes Research at Undergraduate Institutions (RUI), which is a terrific program. RUI is a program that is similar to the regular research grants but supports faculty members at predominantly undergraduate institutions.
The application process is less complicated, with shorter narrative, and no deadlines. It is also under-utilized (less competitive?).
