Early-career and mid-career faculty who are engaged in research re-alignment will be given priority for travel grants. Travel grants will be awarded to cover costs for NSHE faculty to travel to NASA Centers and in some instances to visit businesses involved in NASA missions. Although travel grants are designed to only cover travel costs (within the U.S. only), some salary coverage may be considered for Desert Research Institute (DRI) faculty who do not have state-supported salaries, i.e., DRI is a soft money research institution within NSHE.
Topical workshops and an annual NV NASA EPSCoR and Space Grant Symposium provide a unique opportunity for NSHE researchers to discuss and form collaborations for training and proposal development purposes. Workshops awards will provide one to two days of meeting time for specific training and proposal development efforts. Workshops awards will also provide the opportunity to develop collaborations among NSHE faculty, NASA scientists / engineers and industry. Topical areas that may be identified for RID seed grant or CAN proposals are potential topic areas to receive a workshop award.
