The Office of Research and Creative Activity invites those interested to apply for the Nebraska EPSCoR FIRST Award grant.This program is funded by an NSF infrastructure grant to Nebraska EPSCoR. The FIRST Award grant is limited to $25,000 for the funding period with a 100% matching requirement. Nebraska EPSCoR anticipates awarding approximately six grants. Each grantee is required to submit a CAREER grant proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) during or immediately after the end of the award period.
An award amount is limited to $25,000 and requires a dollar-for-dollar, non-federal match (cash, such as start-up funds, or documented in-kind release from teaching). No indirect costs are allowed.
FIRST Awards will be granted for a period starting February 1, 2021, and ending November 30, 2021. Because the end date of NE EPSCoR funding from NSF will also be November 30, 2021, the FIRST Award funding period will be ten months and absolutely no no-cost extension will be allowed.
