The NASA-Missouri Space Grant Consortium is requesting proposals to extend the Consortium’s capabilities and enhance collaborations with Missouri academic institutions that are not permanent members. The MOSGC expects to award a total of approximately $70,000 under this solicitation for proposals with anticipated funding levels ranging from $7,500 to $15,000 per proposal. Proposals for lesser amounts will be considered. Note that, excluding fellowships and scholarships, a one-to-one cost share match is required for all funds awarded as a result of this solicitation. The Missouri Space Grant Office reserves the right to partially fund proposals if deemed appropriate. The actual distribution of awards will be dependent upon the availability of FY2018 funding from NASA.
The main mission of the Consortium is to maintain and enhance, through the State's research universities and corporate partners, the Nation’s workforce capabilities in aerospace and space related science, engineering, and technology; and to aid in the dissemination of NASA related information to students, faculty, researchers, and the general public. The primary goal of the Consortium is to inspire, motivate, recruit, educate, and train students to be competent researchers at all academic levels in order to help meet Missouri’s and NASA’s need for skilled, knowledgeable, diverse, and high-performing professional scientists, engineers, technologists, and educators specializing in the fields of interest to NASA.


Eligibility is limited to accredited academic institutions and informal education providers in Missouri that are not permanent Affiliates of the Consortium.
