NASA Nebraska EPSCoR Research Mini-Grants
This program provides NASA Nebraska EPSCoR research mini-grants to Nebraska researchers interested in strengthening already existing ties with NASA scientists and conducting research that supports the NASA Mission Directorates.
NASA Nebraska EPSCoR Mini-Grants have two primary objectives:
1) To elevate the aerospace-related research being conducted in Nebraska for future infrastructure building and workforce development opportunities; and
2) To result in future proposals to NASA and/or other federal, state, or private organizations for funding.
The next competition will open in October 2019.
