Poston, Muriel E. [1].

NSF Funding opportunities to support undergraduate and K-12 research and educational activities.

This informational session will feature a presentation about the National Science Foundation (NSF) funding opportunities that support undergraduate research and education as well as opportunities for K-12 educators. Programs such as Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU sites), Undergraduate Mentoring in Environmental Biology (UMEB), Cross-Disciplinary Research at Undergraduate Institutions (CRUI), and programs that will link researchers and science educators (Research Experience for Teachers) will be presented and discussed. A number of other programs that provide supplements to currently funded awards will also be highlighted. A brief overview of programs supported by the Education and Human Resource Directorate, including Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI), GK-12, and others that support in pre-service and in-service teaching activities.
