Grants of up to $30,000 to Alaska IHE faculty members for science and engineering research. The purpose of this grant is to provide early-or-mid-career faculty seeking to change their research focus to one of the following topics: Earth system science, aeronautics, and technologies for space and extreme environments.

A research initiation grant is designed to give a PI initial funding for a research topic that is relevant to NASA and its strategic objectives. The goal is for the research to mature so the PI can submit a competitive proposal to one of the NASA's regular grant programs: http://nspires.nasaprs.com/external

Proposed academic research projects must be aligned with new or continuing NASA research priorities and should have the potential to link Alaska faculty to NASA colleagues at Field Centers and/or Mission Directorates.

Research Priority Areas:

1) Earth System Science:
-Advance Earth system science to meet the challenges of climate and environmental change.
-Monitoring of environmental change, mapping and remote sensing, and hazard prediction and mitigation.

2) Technologies for Space and Extreme Environments:
-Create the innovative new space technologies for exploration, science, and economic future.
-Monitoring of environmental change, mapping and remote sensing, and hazard prediction and mitigation.
-Land transport, shipping, aviation, aerospace, and telecommunications technology.

3) Aeronautics Research:
-Advance aeronautics research for societal benefit.
-Land transport, shipping, aviation, aerospace, and telecommunications technology.

The Research Initiation program will provide up to $20,000; or if a collaborative proposal between MAU’s, up to $30,000.

The period of performance of this award may not exceed 14 months. Projects are eligible for one-time funding only.
