FY2023 Pre-Proposals Due: September 11th, 2022 11:59 P.M.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Office of STEM Engagement, in cooperation with NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD), Human Exploration & Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD), Science Mission Directorates (SMD), the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), and NASA’s nine Centers, plus the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), solicit proposals for the NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
The National NASA EPSCoR solicitation was released on August 18th, 2022, with a single strong full proposal due from Iowa on November 16th, 2022. To allow sufficient time to select and develop this proposal, the Iowa NASA EPSCoR office solicits for pre-proposals in advance of the CAN release and proposal due date. Based on past CAN solicitations, no significant changes are anticipated. The selected proposal will be submitted by the Iowa NASA EPSCoR office to NSPIRES.
Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to NASA’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. There are 28 jurisdictions in NASA EPSCoR, each of which is allowed to submit one proposal for this Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN).
Faculty throughout Iowa, particularly junior faculty, women, and members of underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. NASA EPSCoR does not have citizenship requirements. However, it should be noted that foreign nationals are not normally allowed into NASA Centers. Faculty with a current NASA EPSCoR Research CAN award are not eligible to apply.
It is the proposer’s responsibility to view the FY2023 CAN in its entirety, new CAN will be posted when released by NASA. This year’s announcement can be found here: NASA FY2023 CAN Solicitation
