NASA EPSCoR provides seed funding enabling jurisdictions (states) to develop an academic research enterprise directed toward long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospace-related research. NASA EPSCoR objectives are to: contribute to and promote the development of research infrastructure in EPSCoR jurisdictions in areas of strategic importance to the NASA mission; improve the capabilities of the jurisdictions to gain support from sources outside the NASA EPSCoR program; develop partnerships between NASA research assets, industry, and EPSCoR jurisdictions’ academic institutions; and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and/or economic development of the jurisdiction.
NASA offers the following grant awards: Cooperative Agreement Notices (CAN), Rapid Response Research (RRR), International Space Station Flight Opportunities (ISS), and Rsearch Infrastructure Development (RID).
Research Infrastructure DevelopmentWebsite
EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development awards, or RID. This component enables jurisdictions to build and strengthen relationships with NASA researchers. The RID has a three-year base period of performance with a potential one-year no cost extension. Awards are $125,000 per year. NASA intends to announce the RID opportunity every three to five years, pending funding availability.
