As part of NASA's National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, we are funded to promote aerospace-related research, education, and public service programs to encourage a Diverse Workforce. This is accomplished through a national network of colleges, universities, industry and federal agency partners.

The Nebraska Space Grant offers several funding opportunities, including Fellowships, and mini-grants for Higher Education, Informal Education, Research, and Teacher Training.


NASA Nebraska EPSCoR FY16 Call for Pre-Proposals

NASA Nebraska EPSCoR is pleased to announce its Call for Pre-Proposals for this year’s NASA EPSCoR program. The purpose of the NASA EPSCoR program is to establish partnerships with government, higher education, and industry that are designed to effect lasting improvements in a state’s or region’s research infrastructure, R&D capacity and hence, its national R&D competitiveness. In addition to the research and technology development, the awards enable faculty development and higher education student support.

Each year NASA Nebraska EPSCoR holds a statewide proposal competition to select the top proposal from across the state.  The selected proposal is ultimately submitted on behalf of NASA Nebraska EPSCoR to the national competition. While NASA has not yet released its RFP for this year, NASA Nebraska EPSCoR is collecting required Letters of Intent from interested researchers across the state.  Letters of Intent for this year’s proposal cycle are due on November 13, with Pre-Proposals due on December 2. 

Download these instructions for the content, format, and submission of Letters of Intent and Pre-Proposals.
