An Update has been added to this solicitation, please see link below to download update from NASA.
Due: December 22, 2014
Nevada NASA EPSCoR
We anticipate that the federal CAN release date will occur this Spring. We are beginning the
preproposal stage at this time to allow for sufficient time to develop a strong proposal from
Nevada. At this time, we know that NASA is considering the option of allowing each state to
submit two complete proposals per state. Once we have confirmation one way or the other, we
will ammend this announcement. We are currently basing this solicitation on past solicitations
and at this time, do not anticipate any drastic changes to occur.
It has been noted that faculty who identify a collaborative effort with
NASA personnel or NASA Contractors within their proposal are often
more successful than when this type of relationship has been absent
or neglected. Proposals demonstrating this type of involvement are
therefore, strongly encouraged.
It is also noted that all successful CAN proposals include statewide
collaborations. In an effort to support and strengthen statewide
synergy and collaborations necessary for a strong proposal, the
NSHE Sponsored Programs and EPSCoR Office will be accepting (on
an ongoing basis) applications for funding to support team building
workshops to create competitive statewide efforts in response to the
anticipated NASA EPSCoR CAN and other research funding
opportunities to the state.
