Focus: The Nevada Space Grant Consortium (NVSGC) seeks to develop a diverse and capable Nevada STEM workforce by providing funds for NASA-related faculty research and/or workforce development projects. Selected faculty projects will enhance Nevada’s research infrastructure and/or provide STEM workforce development opportunities for students in NASA Mission Directorate research topic areas (see attached list). These funds should not augment existing funded research projects.
Funding: The Research Infrastructure awards will be $29,960 Federal with anticipated $21,982 state matching funds (depending on availability of State of Nevada funding) for 4-5 RI awards. Each submitted proposal must include signed budgets from their institution and any collaborating campuses with the amount of the collaborators total budget listed under 1.A. Subcontracts on the NSHE budget form for the lead institution. Awards will be made to the lead PI and then their institution will sub-award funds to any collaborating NSHE institutions.
