Grants of up to $10,000 to Iowa faculty at eligible institutions of higher education for programs that support STEM education. The purpose of the program is to develop curricula with a focus on skill-building. Focus areas include science, aeronautics research, human exploration operations, and space technology. Eligible applicants are faculty of ISGC core institutions and academic affiliates: Drake, ISU, Iowa, UNI, Des Moines Area Community College, and Loras College.

To support mission directorate alignment with emerging curriculum, the ISGC plans to award four projects focused on activities aligning within any of the four NASA Mission Directorates: Aeronautics Research (ARMD), Human Exploration Operations (HEO), Science (SMD), and Space Technology (STMD). 

To be considered for this funding, proposals should utilize STEM related curricula focused on preparing the future STEM workforce and/or STEM preservice educators by including (but not limited to) augmenting hands-on instruction, using online and virtual NASA content experiences, using publicly available NASA data, and accelerating the use of digital learning tools. 

Priority will be given to proposals which:

  1. Are developing curricula supporting transdisciplinary learning and are attempting to develop STEM ecosystems fostering partnerships between educators and industry,
  2. Collaborate with other ISGC affiliates,
  3. Recruit females, members of underrepresented minorities, persons with disabilities, andU.S. military veterans.
