As you will see below there are many opportunities for both education enhancement and research development available from Montana Space Grant Consortium and Montana NASA EPSCoR.
Educational Enhancement Grants:
Education Enhancement Grants are awarded competitively within the state through internal review of proposals. Emphasis is on "product" or "value added"; we will not fund "improvements" which require continuing Consortium funding to maintain their existence. Awards are for one year, but may be renewed if further development and goals are proposed.

Research Initiation Grants:
Research Initiation grants are awarded competitively through internal and external review of proposals. These are intended as "seed money", are for one year of funding only, and are not renewable through the Consortium. Awardees are required to submit a follow-on proposal to NASA for regular research funding during the year of the grant. The majority of this funding has gone to graduate student support, providing both research and education enhancement simultaneously.
