Resource Implementations for Data Intensive Research in the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (RIDIR)

  • Seeks to develop user-friendly large-scale next-generation data resources and relevant analytic techniques to advance fundamental research in SBE areas of study. Successful proposals will construct such databases and/or relevant analytic techniques and produce a finished product that will enable new types of data-intensive research. The databases or techniques should have significant impacts, either across multiple fields or within broad disciplinary areas, by enabling new types of data-intensive research in the SBE sciences. 
  • Full Proposal Deadline Date: February 28, 2018

NSF Award Supplements

Investigators with an active NSF research award may request supplemental funding to provide research experiences for undergraduate students, K-12 STEM teachers, and/or full-time community college faculty.  The Directorate for Biological Sciences also offers “Research Opportunity Award” supplements for faculty from primarily undergraduate institutions. These supplemental awards are a great (and easy) way to add funds to existing projects and broaden the impact of existing awards.  


Research Experience for Undergraduates

The purpose of these supplemental awards is to enable undergraduate students to participate in NSF supported research. They provide summer or calendar year stipends for the students and possibly modest supplies for the undergraduate project. The students must be US citizens or permanent residents and may not receive REU support after graduating.

Research Experience for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science

The purpose of these supplemental awards is to facilitate professional development of K-12 science teachers through research experience at the cutting edge of science. The duration of the RET Supplement will be one year and the project may be carried out during summer months, the academic year, or both. The total cost of the supplement is limited to $10,000 per teacher/community college faculty. The budget includes a teacher's /community college faculty stipend and up to $2,000 for the cost of materials, equipment, software and other supplies for developing classroom instructions and experiments.
