International Space Station Solicitation

This Notice of Funding Opportunity ( NOFO or Solicitation) is for current or previously funded EPSCoR projects or other research projects that are mature enough to design a research experiment or develop research experimental hardware to the point that it can be safely flown on the ISS. Each NASA-funded EPSCoR proposal is expected to perform scientific and/or technical research in areas that support 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.

This selection will be a two-step process:

  • In the first step, proposals will be evaluated through an online NSPIRES peer review process by an ISS Program representative for flight feasibility and by the appropriate Mission Directorate representative for evaluation of ground-based results. There may be a down select of proposals at the conclusion of this first step based on feedback from the ISS Program representative as to the supportability of the proposed projects.
  • In the second step, the proposals recommended for flight will be presented to a Mission Directorate review panel for funding recommendations.

Proposals may be submitted for a maximum award of $100,000 for a three-year period of performance.
