Deadline for NASA EPSCoR ISS Flight Opportunity
February 10 • 11:59 pm
NASA EPSCoR and the International Space Station (ISS) Collaboration
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Office of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Engagement (OSTEM) solicits proposals for the NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) ISS Flight Opportunity.
View the announcement document.
Researchers from EPSCoR jurisdictions may propose experiments to be flown on the International Space Station (ISS). ISS will provide integration and the flight opportunity for approved projects.
Proposals are due April 5, 2023.
Only one proposal may be submitted per EPSCoR jurisdiction. Proposals must be submitted by the jurisdiction NASA EPSCoR Director, Edward Duke Edward.Duke@sdsmt.edu, so interested researchers must notify him of their interest by Feb. 10, 2023, in the event that a state down-selection is necessary.
- Available Funding for this funding opportunity: $600,000
- Projected Number of Awards: Up to six (6) awards of $100,000 each.
- Maximum Award Amount: $100,000
- Anticipated Period of Performance (PoP): NASA EPSCoR awards will support a three (3)-year cooperative agreement. It is anticipated that this PoP will enable the researchers to achieve the performance task objectives of the microgravity flight as stated in the original proposal and/or as included in any amendments submitted with the recipient’s annual progress reports and accepted by the NASA EPSCoR project office.
- Projected Period of Performance Start Date(s): The project start date will be negotiated with the NASA Shared Services Center (NSSC) Grants Officer.
- Projected Period of Performance End Date(s): The PoP end date will be three (3) years from the negotiated PoP start date.
