Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


The long-range goal of the VIGRE program is to increase the number of well-prepared U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents who pursue careers in the mathematical sciences. A successful VIGRE project must:

1. integrate research with educational activities;
2. enhance interaction among undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and faculty members;
3. broaden the educational experiences of its students and postdoctoral associates to prepare them for a wide range of career opportunities; and
4. motivate more students to pursue an education in the mathematical sciences. With these goals in mind, each VIGRE proposal must present a coherent plan for the integration of:

  • a graduate traineeship program,
  • an undergraduate research experience program, and
  • a postdoctoral program.
