Research Initiation Grants
The goal of the Montana NASA EPSCoR Research Initiation grant program is to help boost the research programs of Montana higher education faculty research in areas that match scientific and technical problems of importance to NASA, enabling them to compete successfully for regular NASA funding. Research Initiation awards are one year grants for up to $50,000 that can be used for supplies, faculty time, domestic collaboration travel, and student support. Budget requests must have 50% non-federal cost share.
Visit the Montana NASA EPSCoR page for information.
Research Activation Grants
New opportunity! The goal of the Research Activation grant program is to help boost the likelihood of Montana small campus PIs proposing to higher-level research funding in areas that match scientific and technical problems of importance to NASA, and to involve students in the process. Research Activation awards are one year $5,000 - $15,000 grants that can be used for supplies, faculty time, domestic collaboration travel, and student support. Budget requests must have 1:1 non-federal cost share.
Faculty Fellowship Grants
The purpose of the Faculty Fellowships is to foster increased NASA-related research capabilities and activity on Montana campuses. We are particularly interested in increasing the number of faculty mentors who take on undergraduate student researchers at smaller Montana campuses. Fellowships are intended to give Montana faculty members time to participate in training or professional development. Faculty fellowship awards are for one to five weeks at $1,500 per week. They can be used for faculty time and/or domestic travel. Budget requests must have 1:1 personal time cost share.
