NASA Guam EPSCoR
While the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is widely known for its research and achievements related to outer space, the national agency also dives into Earth science and oceanography in an effort to better understand their natural systems and the human-induced impacts that affect the global environment.
The Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, or EPSCoR, creates partnerships with government, higher education, and industry that are designed to affect lasting improvements in a state or region’s infrastructure, research, and development capacity. NASA EPSCoR supports the NASA Earth and Ocean Science Mission at a local level, with research addressing critical challenges such as coral reef conservation, terrestrial land change, water security, and biodiversity in the Pacific Islands.The NASA EPSCoR program focuses on jurisdictions that have not participated equitably in competitive aerospace and aerospace-related research activities.
NASA Guam EPSCoR is housed within UOG and is focused on research that aligns with NASA missions and/or technologies and is relevant to Guam and the region.
NASA Guam EPSCoR is seeking research proposals from University of Guam faculty that align with two of its projects for fiscal 2022: the Research Infrastructure Development Project Plan and the NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice — Hånom Fresko yan Acho’ Tåsi.
Up to four seed grants will be given with a maximum funding of $10,000 each, and projects are expected to be completed by May 1, 2023.
The deadline to submit a proposal is Feb. 11, 2022. For further inquiries, please contact NASA Guam EPSCoR Executive Director Dr. Leslie Aquino at email@example.com.
NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement is soliciting proposals for the fiscal 2022 NASA EPSCoR Research program.
Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to the agency's strategic research and technology development priorities and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities of higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction receiving funding.
As one of the 28 NASA EPSCoR jurisdictions, Guam is eligible to submit one (1) proposal for this Notice of Funding Opportunity, with a budget request of up to $750,000 over a three-year period. Cost-sharing by proposers is required at a level of at least 50% of the requested NASA funds.
For inquiries, contact NASA Guam EPSCoR Executive Director Dr. Leslie Camacho Aquino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The week-long international conference will take place in a hybrid format from April 5-9.
Researchers and faculty are invited to attend an information session at 3 p.m. on Dec. 10.
The project will use unmanned aerial systems and NASA technology to gain critical data on Guam's aquifer.
