Grants of up to $60,000 to Montana IHE faculty researchers for studies in a wide range of scientific and engineering fields. Funding is intended to support aerospace programs that further the state's economy, connect faculty with industry, fortify high-tech companies, and build university research enterprises that will foster "spin-off" startup enterprises. Proposals are welcome in all fields of science and engineering normally funded by NASA.
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 Grants from the Montana NASA EPSCoR Program are intended to help junior faculty or faculty new to NASA research at Montana institutions develop nationally competitive research programs in areas of interest to NASA. In addition, the awards can assist in Montana's economic development in aerospace-related fields by strengthening existing Montana high-tech companies, seeking new connections between Montana faculty researchers and state industries, and building university research enterprises that will foster "spin-off" startup enterprises.
Montana NASA EPSCoR goals:
Research Initiation grants are intended as seed money. Research Initiation funding can be used for graduate or undergraduate student support, materials and supplies, facility use fees, domestic travel, and faculty time (though this is not a funding priority).
GrantWatch ID#: 162120
