This may not be relevant but individuals with ongoing National Science
Foundation awards may apply to NSF for supplements to provide research
training for one or two undergraduates (per PI).  The application process
is simple (a letter describing student activities and a one page budget
form).  You should request "Research Experiences For Undergraduates"
program announcement by E-mail to pubs at

NSF also sponsors full-fledged undergraduate research programs involving a
minimum of 6 students.  Guidelines for proposals for such programs are
contained in the same program announcement.
