National Science Foundation (NSF) - Cultural Anthropology Program - Dear Colleague Letter: Cultural Anthropology Research Experience for Graduates (REG), Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
To advance the integration of research and education, the Cultural Anthropology program of the National Science Foundation invites researchers holding existing NSF awards to request a Research Experience for Graduates (REG) or Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Supplement. Whether a REG or REU supplement request, the student's research should be his/her own research project; supplements are not intended to support clerical or research assistants to the PI. Supplements are also not intended to support language training except in the context of a research project. REG supplements are not intended to support dissertation fieldwork, nor will they be granted to support preliminary dissertation site visits in the absence of an independent research project. The purpose of the REG and REU supplements is to provide promising students in cultural anthropology opportunities for independent research while also encouraging PIs to mentor students in cooperative, collaborative activities.
