NASA Guam EPSCoR
Deadline: February 11, 2022
The NASA Guam Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is seeking applications from University of Guam (UOG) faculty for seed grant proposals that align with objectives and specific aims of the NASA Guam EPSCoR Program – Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Project Plan FY2022 and NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) – Hånom Fresko yan Acho’ Tåsi.
The overall goal of the NASA Guam EPSCoR RID is to develop a competitive research and technology program aligned with NASA missions and the priorities of Guam and the region. This overall goal will be carried out through the objectives and activities listed in the NASA RID and NASA CAN.
Objective 1: Develop a science education, workforce training, and fiber cable hub and research station on Guam.
Objective 2: Conduct high resolution coral reef mapping efforts and rapid coral bleaching assessments in Guam and Micronesia.
Objective 3: Foster innovative research from UOG faculty through seed grants.
Objective: Use geospatial datasets of varying resolutions and traditional in situ field data toenable researchers to characterize and model different aspects of coastal freshwater discharge, from ridge to reef.
Up to four (4) awards will be given with a maximum funding of $10,000. Proposals will be selected based on the quality of the research and the potential to achieve significant results from innovative applications of raw NASA datasets or technology, or in the development of new technology to solve Earth and ocean problems in the region. Projects are expected to be completed by May 1, 2023 with a written report.
Proposals should include a research question(s), objectives, methodology, a brief literature review, and relevance to a NASA mission, or NASA Guam EPSCoR RID or CAN objectives. Please attach a budget breakdown and project timeline with the proposal. Please limit proposals to a maximum of ten pages (inclusive of figures, tables, and references).
Proposals may be submitted to Dr. Leslie Aquino, executive director of NASA Guam EPSCoR, via email at email@example.com by February 11, 2022.
Please contact Dr. Aquino if you have any questions or concerns.

NASA OSTEM’s MUREP for American Indian and Alaska Native STEM Engagement CONNECTing Indigenous Culture and Science Through Co-design of STEM Ecosystems (MAIANSE CONNECT) solicits proposals from Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Native American Serving Non-Tribal Institutions (NASNTIs), and Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions (ANNHs), as identified by the U.S. Department of Education, to develop STEM ecosystems through the creation of co-designed STEM engagement activities with a focus on weaving NASA unique assets with community needs and partnerships.
Here are a few highlights; be sure to bookmark this website for more updates on ROSES opportunities.
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate seeks proposals from accredited U.S. universities for research grants to begin in the 2022-23 academic year. Each proposal must identify a master’s or doctoral degree student participant in eligible Earth and space sciences as the future investigator. Projects may propose up to a three-year period of performance. Proposal deadline is February 11, 2022. Visit the website for details and proposal requirements then email HQ-FINESST@mail.nasa.gov with any questions.
Help bring your community into this historic moment in our common exploration of the wider universe through the Webb Community Events. NASA’s vision for the Community Events is to create and nurture generations of science enthusiasts, including underserved audiences, through long-term, meaningful engagement with Webb’s discoveries. NASA will support events of all types and sizes (in-person, virtual, hybrid) hosted by community organizations and institutions like yours. Events can be held through the summer and fall of this year and will be supported with training sessions for hosts, virtual Subject Matter Expert panels, event & media support materials, STEM activities & digital resources, and print materials & handouts. Our goal is that with your help, Webb’s first images will captivate and inspire a new generation of space science enthusiasts, and reach a broader, more diverse audience than ever before. Learn more about the initiative and apply to be an official Webb Community Event host here. The deadline for applications is Feb. 25, 2022.
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is soliciting proposals for U.S. graduate student-designed and performed research projects that contribute to SMD's science, technology, and exploration goals identified and funded by the Astrophysics, Biological and Physical Science, Earth Science, Heliophysics, Planetary Science, and Science Engagement and Partnerships Divisions. For more information on this opportunity, visit the FINESST NSPIRES page to view the recent teleconference recording and further details. Proposals are due on February 11, 2022. Email your questions to HQ-FINESST@mail.nasa.gov.
NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate and the Space Grant Office seek proposals for new ideas/concepts relevant to NASA aeronautics. Selected teams will receive grants for their projects and be responsible for raising a modest amount of cost-share funds through a crowdfunding platform. The process of creating and preparing a crowdfunding campaign acts as a teaching accelerator, requiring students to develop entrepreneurial skills. Visit the NSPIRES website for more information and contact HQ-USRC@mail.nasa.gov with any questions.
As a NASA intern, students will work with leading experts and gain valuable experience as they participate in research and mission projects. Summer applications are due March 4th with accepted interns beginning June 6th. Fall applications are due July 8th with accepted interns beginning August 29th. Share the “5 Misconceptions about Applying for a NASA Internship” with students undecided about applying.
