Grants to Montana faculty groups at IHEs for science and engineering research that will contribute to the aerospace industry. Collaborative projects between two or more institutions will be given additional consideration. Successful proposals will involve interdisciplinary collaboration within the science and engineering disciplines.

  • The focus of NASA EPSCoR Research Group awards is to fund research that NASA currently wants performed. Excellent science or engineering is not sufficient. Therefore, all Research Group pre-proposals should include the strongest possible evidence that the group has active, well-established ties to researchers at NASA Centers or Headquarters (HQ). Involved NASA collaborators/colleagues will be expected to be knowledgeable about the proposed research program and should be willing to act as advocates for funding of the proposal. 
  • Successful pre-proposals should demonstrate interdisciplinary collaboration. Interdisciplinary research might look different in engineering vs. science but, within reason for the proposed work, teams with larger varieties in investigator areas of expertise will be favored..
  • At the jurisdiction level (Montana in this case) NASA’s stated intention is to “contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, and economic development of the jurisdiction.”
