Solar NEXUS Technical Assistance for Proposal Writing

Nevada’s NSF EPSCoR Track-1 program provides funding to provide technical assistance for proposal and manuscript preparation for all NSHE faculty to promote competitive attainment of follow-on funding to current Track-1 research efforts (Solar Energy, Water-Energy Nexus, Environment *requestors must make the case that the topic of their proposal/manuscript is directly aligned with the Nexus topics).

Requests to provide assistance for preparation of proposals being submitted to all funding agencies will be considered, but priority will be given those being submitted to NSF. Priority also will be given to investigators without strong funding histories. These priorities do not mean that others cannot receive assistance.

Requests to provide assistance for preparation of manuscripts being submitted to all peer-reviewed journals will be considered, but priority will be given to those being submitted to journals that are prestigious within the topic area and command national attention. Assistance will not be provided for manuscripts being prepared for conference proceedings.

*Requestors must make the case that the topic of their proposal/manuscript is directly aligned with the Nexus topics.

If you have difficulties submitting the online application form, please contact Marcie Jackson or (702) 522-7079

Once submitted, this application will be sent directly to the Project Director, Gayle Dana. You will receive a response as soon as possible. Approval is contingent upon Mr. Kreidberg’s availability.

Eligibility: Undergraduate students enrolled full time (12 credits for fall and 1-3 credits for summer) at any NSHE institution during the time they are conducting their research. Scholar must have a NSHE faculty mentor to supervise their research project.

Students working in areas of science, technology, engineering or math (STEM), except for medical sciences, are eligible. Fields related to solar energy, water and/or environmental research are of special interest. Students with research tied to medical sciences are encouraged to apply for the National Institutes of Health IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence (NIH INBRE). For more information, visit http://www.unr.edu/inbre

Funding: $4,000 for students
