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.
Research Infrastructure Development (RID)
The NASA Rapid Response Research program's goal is to foster close collaborations among NASA, industry and university faculty to solve specific current NASA research challenges. This opportunity is currently closed. We anticipate the R3 solicitations to be released during mid-2020.
Rapid Response Research (R3)
The FY 2020 NASA EPSCoR Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) is closed. Stay tuned for the next solicitation cycle and keep checking our website for updates. We anticipate EPSCoR CAN and ISS solicitations to be released during the October-November months.
Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN)
The International space Station Flight Opportunity 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. Stay tuned for the next solicitation cycle and keep checking our website for updates. We anticipate ISS solicitations to be released during the October-November months.
ISS Flight Opportunity
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.
