2017 Community and Technical College Initiative

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Announcing the 2017 Community and Technical College Initiative being funded by the NASA-Missouri Space Grant Consortium. 

You can download the 2017 Community and Technical College Initiative Announcement which describes the grant opportunity in detail and a budget form to be used along with the proposal to be sent.

This is an excellent opportunity for community and technical colleges to involve students in interesting projects that might provide a career enhancing/changing spark!

I would very much appreciate your active help in spreading this solicitation to anyone you might know at community colleges and encouraging them to apply.

For more information, please contact Dr. S.N. Balakrishnan (information below).  He will be able to set up a visit to your community college or university to talk more in depth about the funding opportunity to those interested.
