Explore NASA-funded research opportunities for Guam
NASA Guam EPSCoR and NASA Guam Space Grant will be holding an information session at 3 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 10 to notify the island community of funding opportunities from the national space agency that support research in our region.
These opportunities are aligned with NASA's Science Mission Directorate and cover a broad range of research areas, such as astronomy, physical science, oceanography, biology, computer science and technology, and engineering, among others.
Project funding ranges from one to three years, with a research budget of up to $750,000. Fellowship and internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students will also be shared.
Researchers and faculty in higher education are encouraged to attend this virtual session. Interested individuals may sign up for the virtual session at nasaguamopps.eventbrite.com. A Zoom link to the session will be available upon confirmation of your registration.

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. 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 Space Grant (NGSG) is a member of the University of Hawai’i Space Grant Consortium, which participates in the National Space Grant College and Fellowship program and administers the University Research Internship (URI) program. NGSG aims to inspire and train future generations of professionals in areas concerned with the understanding, utilization, exploration, and investigation of both space and earth, which includes our regional island environments, through research and internships. The program is housed within the Micronesian Area Research Center at the University of Guam and supports educational initiatives that focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as they support NASA’s missions.
