The Alabama NASA Research Infrastructure Development (RID) Program

The goals of the Alabama RID program are to increase Alabama’s success in earning competitive awards from a variety of sources and to build the strength of research groups at Alabama’s research universities. The State EPSCoR Committee decided to concentrate the limited NASA funds on assisting faculty who are, as yet, largely unfunded in developing their research competitiveness, assisting them in getting new results and building external relationships. The State Committee requested a plan for a Seed Grant program that targets faculty who have been in their positions for less than 5 years. Alabama has won a RID Program grant from NASA each time the opportunity was offered. In the most recent program, after a rigorous competition, eleven PI’s were chosen from 5 universities. Of these eleven, 6 have achieved significant success and are considered to have “graduated with honors”. Dr. Amy Lang, University of Alabama; Microgeometries for Boundary Layer Control
