Fourteen proposals were selected for funding in Alaska, Alabama, Hawaii, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Winning proposals were selected through a merit-based, peer-reviewed competition.

One proposal was selected from each of the following universities and organizations:

 

  • Brown University, Providence, R.I.
  • Louisiana Board of Regents, Baton Rouge
  • Montana State University, Bozeman
  • University of Alabama, Huntsville

The selections are part of NASA’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research. The program helps develop partnerships among NASA research missions and programs, academic institutions and industry. It also helps the awardees establish long-term academic research enterprises that will be self-sustaining and competitive, and contribute to the jurisdictions’ economic viability and development.
