NASA EPSCOR – Missouri

Dear Colleague,

Please see  2015 NASA-EPSCoR MO RID Competition Announcement – final

The NASA EPSCoR Missouri jurisdiction is accepting two-year proposals from early career faculty to improve NASA related research capabilities within the state. Research Infrastructure Development (RID) proposals should focus on building the core strength needed to develop and enhance competitive research and technology development methods and activities for solutions to scientific and technical problems of importance to NASA. Successful proposals will address national research interests as defined by one or more of NASA’s three Mission Directorates, the Office of the Chief Technologist, and/or one or more of NASA’s Field Research Centers and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The selected proposals will also contribute to the overall research infrastructure for science, engineering, and technology capabilities; higher education; and/or economic development in Missouri.

The deadlines are as follows:

Required Notice of Intent: Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Proposal Submission: Friday, July 31, 2015

The above need to be e-mailed to Dr. David Riggins, Missouri NASA EPSCoR Director at with a copy to Dr. Stephen Haug at and  Please see the attached announcement, or click here, for format and other details.

Note that a cost share (match) of 1:1 is required from non-federal sources and in-kind cost-sharing is allowable.  NASA’s Cooperative Agreement Notice states that “It is strongly urged that indirect costs be waived or reduced by the university; the waived indirect costs can be used as matching funds.”  For this reason, I will cost share the F&A costs, but note that the balance amount needs to be taken care by the participating departments.

With best regards,
