The goal of NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is to provide seed funding that will enable jurisdictions to develop an academic research enterprise directed toward long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospace-related research.
The Research Infrastructure Development (RID) program is designed to provide seed funding to faculty who are conducting research that aligns with NASA Mission Directorates and NASA Field Centers. This one-time award is open year-round.

A Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) is used to solicit unique research programs and/or related activities that involves a relatively high degree of interaction and cooperation between NASA and the selected recipient(s) to achieve NASA’s desired objectives. NASA EPSCoR CAN 2020 solicitation estimated release date: November 2019.
Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN)
We enable faculty from these academic institutions to compete for funds from NASA and non‐NASA sources outside of the EPSCoR program in order to find solutions for scientific and technical problems of importance to NASA Centers, Mission Directorates, and the Office of the Chief Technologist.
