Grant Description
Grants of up to $50,000 to Nevada faculty members at institutions of higher education to develop curriculum and hands-on learning opportunities within the STEM fields. Funding is intended for programs and activities that involve the disciplines of aeronautical engineering, space and planetary exploration, off-grid habitation, climate change evaluation, and general STEM topics.

Funding through this program is available within the following categories: 

  • Curriculum Development (CD) Focus:  The primary focus for the Curriculum Development program is to establish new and/or revised courses and materials that infuse NASA content directly related to NASA Mission Directorate priorities within NSHE institutional curricula.
  • Hands-On-Training (HOT) Focus:  The primary focus of this program is to establish new authentic STEM hands-on-training activities for college students that utilize NASA-related interdisciplinary content.  

For both the CD and HOT, the NASA Office of STEM Engagement (NASA OSTEM) Space Grant solicitation states that all funded projects must be directly relevant to one or more Mission Directorate priorities. For additional information about these priorities, see:
