Funding to the Iowa NASA EPSCoR program improved capacity to do quality research. The Iowa program helped build a base of NASA-literate and connected researchers who are developing new technologies and successfully securing support for projects beyond seed funding. The Iowa program improved connections between Iowa and NASA researchers by funding travel to NASA centers to establish collaborations. NASA EPSCoR funding increased the number of researchers in Iowa working on NASA technical issues by providing seed grants. Finally, the program helped build partnerships through intra-state research collaborations in NASA relevant areas by funding networking meetings to exchange ideas, explore emerging research areas, and work more effectively. This NASA EPSCoR Jurisdiction is one of EPSCoR’s success stories. In 2013 Iowa “graduated” from EPSCoR by exceeding the National Science Foundation’s research funding percentage eligibility line as shown on their FY 2013 and subsequent eligibility tables.
