FY24 NASA Nebraska EPSCoR Statewide Limited Submission Competition

NASA Nebraska EPSCoR is pleased to announce its Call for Proposals for this year’s NASA EPSCoR program.  The purpose of this statewide competition is to select the top proposal from across Nebraska.  The selected proposal will be submitted to the national competition on behalf of NASA Nebraska EPSCoR. The NASA Nebraska EPSCoR program is initiating this competition at the state level to evaluate the proposal to be submitted upon NASA’s official announcement of the national competition.  NASA Nebraska EPSCoR will only consider proposals from this competition to be eligible in the national NASA EPSCoR competition upon release of a solicitation.
