Delaware Space Grant Consortium (DESGC) - Delaware NASA EPSCoR
Grants of up to $21,000 to Delaware researchers, postdoctoral scholars, and junior faculty members to develop academic research in science and technology. Funding is intended to support seed projects in engineering, space, astrophysics, and aeronautics that may develop into more nationally competitive and long-term capabilities. Proposals must demonstrate alignment with one or more of the Strategic Goals listed in NASA's Strategic Plan.
The Delaware NASA EPSCoR Seed Grant Program is aimed at promoting research and development in NASA-related areas among Delaware scientists and engineers. The goal is to stimulate scholarly initiatives by supporting junior faculty, researchers, and postdocs who have not yet received significant government funding. Consideration will also be given to more senior faculty who are embarking on a new research direction, but who have not yet received funding for that new research.
The seed grant program is intended to support proposal development, pilot research, and other activities that advance a NASA-related research project to the point at which it can attract competitive extramural funding. The relation between the proposed research and NASA’s mission can be demonstrated by identifying a committed collaborator from a NASA center, or a collaborator who is already successful in obtaining NASA research funding.
Funding requests can include the following categories of direct costs: graduate student stipend (use the graduate student stipend rate for your college); research supplies (excluding equipment/an item costing $5,000 or more); summer support for junior faculty/researchers, maximum of one month; and a summer undergraduate intern.
