Grants for third-and fourth-year undergraduates will be known as a National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant or a National SMART Grant.
SMART Grant Eligibility:

For third-or fourth-year eligibility a student must be pursuing a major in physical, life, or computer sciences, mathematics, technology, or engineering (as determined by regulation) or in a foreign language that is critical to U.S. National Security.
