Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Wisconsin research staff and faculty affiliated with qualified IHEs and industry affiliates for space-related research initiatives. Funding is intended for research projects involving students. Women, individuals from minority backgrounds, and people with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.

Programs should do two or more of the following: 

  • Emphasize new lines of space-related research.
  • Increase research capability.
  • Build research infrastructure.
  • Establish research collaborations.
  • Initiate research opportunities in line with the NASA Mission Directorates (For more information on NASA Directorates, see spacegrant.carthage.edu/about/mission/directorates).
  • Enhance research collaborations, mentorships, and other opportunities with NASA Centers.
  • Establish collaborations among faculty from liberal arts colleges with faculty from research-intensive doctoral universities, Wisconsin aerospace industries, and NASA Centers.
  • Implement research activities linking academic and industrial affiliates, including workshops, seminars, internships, data transfer, and technology transfer.

Successful proposals will combine a robust, relevant research project with a plan that fully integrates students into meaningful, high-caliber, significant research experiences from 10 weeks to a full or academic year, culminating in a presentation. Awards will be based on the proposal topic, quality, credentials of the investigator(s), the probability of success in developing space-related research infrastructure, and specific plans on how this seed funding will help to build this research program.

Research initiatives must focus on NASA-related activities including: earth and atmospheric sciences, astronautics, aeronautics, space sciences, and any other space-related fields (e.g. agriculture, business, law, medicine, nursing, social and behavioral sciences, space architecture, and space biology).
