The UNO STEM TRAIL Center invites you to attend their next grant writing workshop focusing on "An opportunity for STEM innovation: Applying for NASA Nebraska space grant and EPSCOR funding."
The workshop will take place Friday, Nov. 22, Noon - 1 P.M. in the Thompson Alumni Center.
AbstractThe NASA Nebraska Space Grant and EPSCoR grant opportunities have been well taken advantage of within the UNO community and across Nebraska to spur innovative STEM teaching, research and community engagement. This grant seminar will provide an overview of some of the past opportunities, awards, and new directions, and will help position faculty for a competitive proposal. The UNO-based leadership of the NASA Nebraska Space Grant office are also a resource to other NASA connections, potential partners, faculty and student professional development, and funding opportunities. Some significant time for questions will also be provided, along with tips on how to approach building a proposal concept.
Scott Tarry, Ph.D., is Distinguished Professor and Director of the UNO Aviation Institute. He is also Director of the NASA Nebraska Space Grant Consortium and the NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Tarry teaches a variety of aviation policy and administration courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
