Grants of up to $20,000 to Wyoming individual university or college professors for new space-related research. Minority applicants, women, and faculty that are in the beginning stages of their career are strongly encouraged to apply. Funding is intended to give grantees a "leg-up" in future proposals to other funding agencies (including NASA and NSF).

Awards are normally made for faculty summer salary, including benefits. Supplies or other research expenses (including wages/support for students or post-docs and travel necessary for the project) are also acceptable.

Grant requests can be made up to a maximum of $20,000.

Projects may begin in July, 2017 and must be completed by the end of June, 2018.

- Applicant faculty must be U.S. citizens. Faculty who are not U.S. citizens may apply for the grant to supply salary or other support for students (who are U.S. citizens) working on the project - unfortunately none of the award may go directly to a faculty member who is not a U.S. citizen.

- Proposals must be of a nationally competitive nature.

- Faculty must hold the rank of assistant professor, associate professor, professor, research associate, full-time faculty/instructor at a community college, or equivalent (sorry, adjunct faculty members and post docs are not eligible).

- The award may not be used for page charges, international travel, tuition for special institutes or off-campus programs, or the purchase of equipment costing more than $1,000.

Cost share in the form of faculty time spent on the project while receiving salary from the University or a community college is required in an amount equal to the award. For UW Faculty this can be reported on monthly PAR reports.

Proposals that include non-federal cost share that can be documented will be given priority. Proposals that cannot be fully funded from other sources will be given priority.
