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. Although travel grants are designed to only cover travel costs (within the U.S. only), some salary coverage may be considered for Desert Research Institute (DRI) faculty and university research faculty who do not have state-supported salaries.

    Funding:  All requests should not exceed $20,000 total (Federal plus State match). State funds provide the 1:1 match required by NASA EPSCoR for travel and workshop awards. No institutional match will be required from your institution. 

    Please read the full solicitation for all relevant details.
