NASA EPSCoR CAN: Request for Preproposals

We anticipate that NASA will issue a Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) announcement for the 2024 EPSCoR program in fall 2023.  It is expected that there will be an opportunity for Delaware to submit one proposal for potential funding under this CAN.  Based on previous funding levels, we anticipate any award to be up to $750,000, expended over three years, with a 50% non-federal cost share requirement.

All interested researchers at Delaware institutions of higher education are invited to submit a preproposal that will be used to determine which full proposal will be submitted to NASA for the 2024 competition.  The full proposal will be expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to NASA’s strategic research and technology development priorities and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction. Appendix A lists NASA’s current research focus areas.

Preproposals are due by Thursday, October 5, 2023.
