NASA EPSCoR Travel Grants for NASA Proposal Development
The Nevada System of Higher Education has received funding from the NASA Office of Education, Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Program to promote and support travel with the explicit objective being the development and submission of proposals to NASA. Deliverables for receipt of these awards include a cover sheet for the submitted proposal(s) to NASA as well as an abstract of the proposal before the end of June 2013.
The Nevada program is particularly looking to foster proposal submissions in areas of earth systems science and the utilization of NASA resources for studies of climate change and systems engineering for exploration. The program has had and has continuing interests in the fields of planetary geology and geophysics, astronomy, astrophysics, astrobiology, materials science and robotics and will support efforts in these areas as well.
