Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Wisconsin research and faculty at funding source-affiliated IHEs and industrial affiliates for space-related research initiatives that involve students. Funding is intended to offer research staff and faculty members support for a broad range of activities related to developing space science, aerospace, and space-related research infrastructure. Funding may be requested to start new or continue existing research programs.

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.
