NASA EPSCoR Research Opportunity
The NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) solicits research proposals through a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) addressing high-priority NASA research and technology development needs. Awards are up to $750,000 for a three-year performance period. The Mississippi NASA EPSCoR Director, with oversight from the Mississippi Research Consortium (MRC), runs a statewide pre-proposal competition to identify the most relevant and competitive proposal for submission.
Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Grants
The Mississippi NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Program provides research initiation seed grants aimed at strengthening Mississippi’s research competitiveness.
Proposals are being accepted through 9 September 2022. See details through the links below.
NASA EPSCoR Rapid Response Research (R3) Opportunity
The goals of R3 program are to provide a streamlined method to address research issues important to NASA, and to enable NASA EPSCoR researchers to work with NASA to solve research issues impacting the Agency’s programs/missions. The Rapid Response Research (R3) program is an attempt to implement research within NASA and commercial partners to address technical issues. This opportunity will allow EPSCoR researchers to work alongside NASA and commercial partners for up to one year and is intended to strengthen the bonds among EPSCoR jurisdictions, NASA, commercial partners, and other entities. Proposals must directly respond to a single Research Focus Area as defined in the solicitation. The current list of Research Focus Areas is available here.
Interested researchers must submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) no later than 7 October 2022 using the link below.
NASA EPSCoR Internation Space Station (ISS) Flight Opportunity
NASA EPSCoR Sub-Orbital Flight Opportunity (SFO)
The Mississippi NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Program provides travel/interaction grants to promote the development of research infrastructure and the development of partnerships between NASA research assets and those of the jurisdiction.
The solicitation is open, and proposals will be accepted at any time through 30 April 2022. Awards are up to $1,750 per request to support travel/interactions that seek to develop new relationships with NASA scientists and engineers at the Mission Directorates and/or Field Centers. The travel/activity must be completed no later than 5/31/2022. Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, researchers may opt to propose virtual meetings, technical interchange sessions, mini-workshops, or other means of interaction in lieu of travel.
