Through ND NASA EPSCoR funding, faculty and students from both research universities in the state, North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota, have been able to make connections across the country with industry partners and NASA centers that would not have been possible without the support of the NASA EPSCoR program. North Dakota is not the first state that comes to mind when one mentions research in space exploration, but we are well on our way through various EPSCoR projects on subjects like human space exploration, spacecraft structures, and climate change. Through the EPSCoR program, students and faculty receive hands-on experience in NASA-relevant research right here in our own backyard. This has opened employment opportunities for students at multiple NASA centers, as well as helped to advance researchers’ careers in STEM.
