2019-2020 INFORMAL EDUCATION (IE) FACULTY COMPETITION

Applications Accepted: 01/18/19 - 03/18/2019
  • The Nevada Space Grant Consortium (NVSGC) announces available funding for 2019-2020 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:  NVSGC seeks to fund 1-2 projects with a maximum federal contribution of $22,000 each.  Due to requirements of the Space Grant program, a 1:1 institutional match is required on all awarded funds. The total maximum funding amount with institutional match per proposal is $44,000 (maximum $22,000 federal + maximum $22,000 institutional match).  

    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
