2018-2019 INFORMAL EDUCATION (IE) FACULTY COMPETITION

Applications Accepted: 01/29/18 - 03/12/2018
  • The Nevada Space Grant Consortium (NVSGC) announces available funding for 2018-2019 Informal Education (IE). 


    Purpose:  The purpose of the Informal Education program is to expand past/current successful pre-college informal education projects and partner with other education-based organizations to provide enhanced STEM training to the broadest possible student population in Nevada.

    We want to promote the development of materials and programs that provide pre-college students with hands-on science or engineering activities including the development of teams to compete in science and engineering challenges relevant to NASA.

    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 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 funding amount with match per proposal is $50,000 (maximum $25,000 federal + maximum $25,000 institutional match).

    Activity period: Proposed activities may occur during the fall 2018 semester through spring/summer 2019.

    Please read the full solicitation for all relevant details.
