Research Opportunities

Idaho NASA EPSCoR typically offers researchers two grant opportunities - research initiation grants and collaboration grants. In addition, Idaho researchers may apply for a national grant through the NASA EPSCoR Research Program (when available).

Idaho NASA EPSCoR Research Initiation Grants

 

Idaho NASA EPSCoR funds Research Initiation Grants to provide opportunities for new researchers to gain experience and/or for established researchers to take a dramatic step in a new research direction.

 

Maximum award amount: $42,000

Award duration: Up to 1 year

Matching requirement: 1:1 (In other words, a non-federal cash or in-kind match equal to the amount requested from Idaho NASA EPSCoR)

Who can apply? Researchers at Idaho institutions of higher education and their employees can apply for these grants.

Proposal submission deadline: Wednesday, April 13, 2020

Idaho NASA EPSCoR Collaboration Grant

 

The goal of the Idaho NASA EPSCoR Collaboration Grant program is to support new collaborations for researchers (faculty and/or students) to increase Idaho's research capabilities. Often, these types of grants are used to fund travel to research centers (e.g., a NASA Center, a National Lab, or a potential industry partner).

 

Maximum award amount: $2,500

Award duration: Up to 1 year, but usually less

Matching requirement: 1:1 (In other words, a non-federal cash or in-kind match equal to the amount requested from Idaho NASA EPSCoR.)

Who can apply? Researchers at Idaho institutions of higher education and their employees can apply for these grants.

Proposal submission deadline: On a rolling basis

National NASA EPSCoR Pre-Proposals

Maximum award amount: $725,000

Award duration: Up to 3 years

Matching requirement: 50% (e.g., if you request $725,000 from NASA; you must provide $375,000 in cost-share)

Who can apply? Researchers from Idaho's colleges and universities can submit pre-proposals.

Notice of Intent deadline: TBD

Pre-proposal submission deadline: TBD
