NASA EPSCoR Stimuli 2014 -15

Guam first became eligible for NASA EPSCoR in 2013. Because of its size and remote location, Guam is aligned with the Hawai’i jurisdiction until it can get its NASA EPSCoR program fully staffed. To accomplish this, Guam will be executing their 2015 Research Infrastructure Development (RID) activity through Hawai’i. Once their RID processes are established they may apply for a $400,000 RID grant (new jurisdictions receive and extra $25,000 the first year of their first RID award to help get the program established). The NASA EPSCoR program office has made contact with Dr. John Peterson from the University of Guam and put him in contact with the Hawai’i NASA EPSCoR director. In addition, Hawai’i was awarded extra RID funding to assist Guam in the near term in preparing any research proposals and to submit those proposals through Hawai’i. The EPSCoR project office is looking forward to Guam’s participation and wish them good luck with their first research proposal.
