Grants of up to $25,000 to Utah faculty members at eligible institutions for research related to STEM. Funding is intended for projects that offer research and engineering opportunities to students. Collaborative proposals and proposals including underrepresented minorities and women are encouraged. New and early career faculty at Utah NASA Space Grant Consortium (UNSGC) affiliated institutions are invited to submit proposals.
The intent of the Utah NASA Space Grant Consortium’s Faculty Research Seed Funding Program is to help develop core expertise and infrastructure to enable investigators to build a sustainable capability in the state which supports NASA’s Mission Directorates. UNSGC encourages researchers to focus their research toward NASA priorities while building ties with NASA Centers and aerospace contractors.
Selected faculty research projects will provide significant, hands-on, authentic research opportunities for two or more STEM students that aligns with one of the NASA Mission Directorate areas: (1) Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate; (2) Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate; (3) Science Mission Directorate; or (4) Space Technology Mission Directorate.
Projects that emphasize partnerships with other universities, industry, state, and local government, and that include women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged. The proposal shall specify alignment with one of the four NASA Mission Directorate needs. Successful proposals will provide opportunities for students to gain hands-on research and engineering experience. Proposers shall describe how these activities will meet the STEM needs of the state and NASA.
