Grants to Kentucky institutions of higher education to support aerospace research projects. A pre-proposal must be submitted prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to advance research, technology, and science in the State, as well as contribute to the technology and research goals of the Funding Source.
Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to strategic research and technology development priorities of one or more NASA MD or Centers and contribute to overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and/or economic development of the EPSCoR jurisdiction in Kentucky.
NASA KENTUCKY invites pre-proposal submissions for in-state selection of one proposal to submit to NASA addressing the mission needs of NASA and aerospace-related research interests of Kentucky.
Proposals should align with national NASA EPSCoR Program objectives and the Agency’s missions and research as well as contribute to research capabilities in the state of Kentucky. For more information about NASA program objectives, priorities, and directorate descriptions, see https://nasa.engr.uky.edu/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/RFP-19-004.pdf#page=5.
