UNLV NSF I-Corps

The NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) is a set of activities and programs that prepare scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the laboratory and broadens the impact of select, NSF-funded, basic-research projects. The Center for Entrepreneurship and UNLV College of Engineering have recently earned the distinguished honor of becoming an NSF I-Corps site and was awarded a three-year, $255,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support site activities. As an NSF I-Corps site, the Center will incubate 15 to 25 projects a year. Faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, staff, and alumni are encouraged to apply to be part of this exciting program. 

Selected teams will receive up to $3,000 plus mentoring support for three months. Please visit the website below for more information about the application process.

Nevada NASA Space Grant Consortium 2018+ Preliminary Multi-year Hands-On-Training Faculty Competition

Focus: The primary focus of this program is to firmly establish new or continuing STEM hands-on-training activities that utilize NASA related interdisciplinary content for higher education and/or pre-college students. Proposals should include authentic, hands-on student activities in NASA-related STEM disciplines.

Funding: NVSGC seeks to fund 2 projects with a maximum federal contribution of $25,000 per year ($75,000 over three years, $50,000 over two years, federal contribution only). Due to the requirements of the Space Grant program, a 1:1 institutional match is required on all awarded funds. The total maximum funding amount with match per proposal is $50,000 per year (maximum $25,000 federal + $25,000 institutional match).
