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.
The Mississippi NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Program provides research initiation seed grants aimed at strengthening Mississippi’s research competitiveness.
NASA EPSCoR Research Announcement (RA)
The NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) solicits research proposals through a Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) 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 to the CAN.
White papers are currently being accepted. See details through the link below.
NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement (OSTEM), in collaboration with the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) Flight Opportunities (FO) program solicits proposals for the fiscal year 2022 NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program. This solicitation is for current or previously funded EPSCoR projects or other research projects that are mature enough to design a research experiment or develop research experimental hardware to the point that it can be flown in a suborbital environment. Mississippi is an eligible EPSCoR jurisdiction. 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 of higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction receiving funding.
