Undergraduate Education Program

The Foundation's Undergraduate Education Program promotes distinctive learning and research experiences in science, engineering and the liberal arts at four year undergraduate colleges only in Foundation designated states, or through national organizations that address undergraduate needs. Public institutions and research universities located in the designated states may apply but must demonstrate a compelling or unique resource to be competitive. Historically, grants range from $200,000 to $1 million, and are typically under $500,000. On a case by case basis, the Foundation may consider the award of smaller seed grants for planning and piloting.
