The Mississippi NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Program provides travel grants to promote the development of research infrastructure and the development of partnerships between NASA research assets and those of the jurisdiction.
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.
NASA EPSCoR ISS Flight Opportunity
The NASA Office of Education, in cooperation with the International Space Station (ISS) Research Office, solicits proposals for the NASA EPSCoR ISS Flight Opportunity. 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. This Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) 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 safely flown on the ISS. Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to perform scientific and/or technical research in areas that support NASA’s strategic research and technology development priorities and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction receiving funding.
