Curriculum Development (CD) Focus: The primary focus for this Curriculum Development program is to establish new and/or revised courses and materials that infuse NASA-related content within NSHE institutional curricula.
Hands-On-Training (HOT) Focus: The primary focus of this program is to firmly establish new STEM hands-on-training activities that utilize NASA related interdisciplinary content within higher education curricula.
Eligibility: Faculty at any Nevada System of Higher Education institution may apply. Important Change: Given new clarifications we received from the general counsel for NASA's Office of Education, non-U.S. citizen faculty may now submit proposals for this solicitation.
Funding: In anticipation of receiving a one-year funded extension of Nevada's current Space Grant award, NVSGC seeks to fund 2-3 projects with a maximum federal contribution of $25,000 each. Due to the requirements of the Space Grant program, a 1:1 institutional match is required on all awarded funds. The total maximum budget amount with match per proposal therefore is $50,000 (maximum $25,000 federal + maximum $25,000 institutional match). The number of awards and funding level are contingent on the availability of funds, which will not be known until June 2018.
Activity period: Proposed activities may occur during the fall 2018 semester through spring/summer 2019.
Please read the full solicitation for all relevant details.
