Grad students: Apply for research funding through NASA
NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is inviting graduate students to submit proposals for research grant funding through the "Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology" (FINESST) program. The funding opportunity is for graduate student–designed and –performed research projects that correspond to one or more of SMD's science, technology, and exploration goals in one of its science divisions: heliophysics, earth science, planetary science, and astrophysics.
This research grant requires that students find an appropriate UOG or NASA mentor relevant to the nature of their research. Dr. Ved Chirayath, director of NASA Ames Laboratory of Advanced Sensing, is available to mentor students with relevant research proposals or is willing to assist in finding other suitable mentors.
The maximum award request is $45,000 per year for a maximum duration of three years. The deadline to submit proposals is Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021. Notices of intent will not be accepted.
An optional Pre-Proposal Teleconference is scheduled at 3:30 a.m. ChST this Wednesday, Nov. 18. Call 1 (888) 994-8796 (U.S. only toll free) or 1 (517) 308-9203 (U.S. toll) and use participant code "3134590" to join.
