Grants to North Carolina researchers at accredited IHEs for research projects. The funding source encourages proposals from females and underrepresented groups. Funding is intended to enable researchers to engage in new research, develop new projects, and create new collaborations to align their work with that of National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) related Mission Directorates.

The North Carolina Space Grant (NC Space Grant) Faculty Research Grant is designed to provide support for faculty. This award is aimed at both emerging and established researchers.

The goals of the Faculty Research Grant are to incentivize faculty to:

  1. Develop new research directions or projects;
  2. Cultivate collaboration among new partners (e.g., universities and colleges, NASA centers, federal laboratories or research facilities, the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory, commercial space and other industry partners, formal and informal education partners, state and local government agencies, etc.); and
  3. Meaningfully engage undergraduate and/or graduate students in their research endeavors.

Recognizing that some faculty and students populations and institutions have historically been underserved and underrepresented within research opportunities and in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, NC Space Grant encourages submissions that encourage and enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion (
