Faculty Connections Program

Montana NASA EPSCoR has been awarded funding for a Montana faculty professional development opportunity. Selected faculty will receive support and funding to arrange travel to a NASA research center with the goal of developing new collaborations, projects, and proposals to foster the growth of NASA related funded research at Montana institutions. The Montana NASA EPSCoR Faculty Connections Program is an opportunity for Montana faculty to make connections with NASA personnel and develop NASA research programs on their campus.

Selection of faculty will be based on the following priority: being a member of a) a Tribal College, b) other Community College, c) other small campus, or d) other faculty who are not part of a research group that has NASA funding. Underrepresented minority and female faculty are especially encouraged to apply.

Travel funding up to $1500 will include airfare, hotel, transportation, and per diem for up to a week working at a NASA research center. Travel will be arranged through the Montana NASA EPSCoR office. A post travel presentation at your home institution and a written report to Montana NASA EPSCoR will be required. Montana NASA EPSCoR anticipates that the Faculty Connections programs are currently available. There is no application deadline, submit applications at any time.
