Grant Description

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Office of Education, in cooperation with NASA’s four Mission Directorates—Aeronautics Research, Exploration Systems, Science, and Space Operations—and NASA’s ten Centers, solicits proposals for the NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to the strategic research and technology development priorities of one or more of the Mission Directorates and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction. Proposals are due on 19 February, 2010. It is anticipated that 6-10 awards of up to $750,000 each to be expended over a three-year period of performance may be made under this Notice pursuant to the authority of the NASA Grant and Cooperative Agreement Handbook, Section 1260.12(d).
