For new or renewal proposals that include a RAHSS component, the Project Description should include relevant information about the broader impacts of the activity (e.g. the meaningful and challenging activities in which the student(s) will be involved and how the student(s) will be mentored). Budgets for RAHSS activities are generally under $6,000 per student. All student costs such as stipends, travel, and lodging, should be entered as "Participant Support Costs". Any proposed non-student costs, such as materials and supplies, should be appropriate for proposed activities and included in other sections of the budget. All expenses must be explained in the budget justification.
Supplemental funding requests to an active BIO award must be prepared and submitted through FastLane in accordance with the instructions in Chapter VI.E.4 of the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG).
Reminder: Any supplemental funding awarded by NSF must be expended by the end date of the original award.
