2019-2020 HIGHER EDUCATION: CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT AND HANDS-ON-TRAINING (HE) FACULTY COMPETITION

Applications Accepted: 01/18/19 - 03/18/2019
  • The Nevada Space Grant Consortium (NVSGC) announces available funding for 2019-2020 Higher Education: Curriculum Development and Hands-On-Training (HE). 


    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:  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 2019.

    Activity period:  Proposed activities may occur during the fall 2019 semester through spring/summer 2020.

    Webinar about this solicitation will be held January 29, 2019 at 4:00 pm PT.  Use this webex link to attend:   JOIN THE MEETING
