NASA EPSCoR Workshop and Travel Support for NASA Collaboration and Proposal Development

Application Deadline: Ongoing
  • The Nevada NASA EPSCoR program announces available funding for Workshop and Travel Support for NASA Collaboration and Proposal Development. 

    NASA EPSCoR Workshop and Travel Support

    Goal:  Facilitate new research collaborations among NASA Centers and NSHE faculty by competitively awarding travel grants and workshop funds.

    Workshops: Topical workshops provide a unique opportunity for NSHE researchers to discuss and form collaborations for training and proposal development purposes. Workshop awards may provide one to two days of meeting time for specific training and proposal development efforts. Workshops also provide potential to develop collaborations among NSHE faculty, NASA scientists/engineers and industry.

    Travel Grants: Early-career and mid-career faculty who are engaged in research re-alignment will be given priority for travel grants. Travel grants will be awarded to cover costs for NSHE faculty to travel to NASA Centers and in some instances to visit businesses involved in NASA missions.

    Funding:  Travel and workshop funds will be distributed as long as funds remain for each grant year. Depending on available funds, it is anticipated that travel awards will not exceed $2,500 total and workshop awards will not exceed $5,000 total with a 1:1 Federal to State Match. Unrecovered F&A must be included as part of the state match. Matching funds will be provided by State Special Projects fund. Each submitted application must include budgets signed by the Sponsored Projects Office or Business Managers from the lead institution.
    Awards will be made to the requesting faculty member. It is expected that each institution will receive both Federal and State matching funds close to the 1:1 match requirement.

    Please read the full solicitation for all relevant details.

    There is no deadline, but all travel and workshop funds will be fully expended annually before the start of a new funding year (typically July 1).
