- RESEARCH PROPOSALS
Research initiation grants are intended to help faculty at NYSG member colleges and universities (see affiliates list in right sidebar) initiate research that will lead to competitive research projects in NASA's priority areas. Proposals are welcome in all fields of science & engineering research and technology development that support NASA's strategic plans and missions.
- STEM HIGHER EDUCATION CURRICULUM ENHANCEMENT PROPOSALS
Proposals for significantly improving educational programs and resources in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields at NYSG member colleges/universities (see affiliates list in right sidebar) are solicited. Successful proposals will present detailed plans for enhancing existing classes/curricula or developing new courses or curriculum resources in NASA priority areas. Proposals involving curriculum changes or additions should provide clear documentation of support for the proposed project by appropriate administrators (department heads, deans, etc.).
