Opportunity Kick-Off: NASA Early Career Faculty

February 10, 2021

Research Development Opportunity Kick-off events are introductions to specific funding opportunities that provide an overview of requirements, advice and lessons learned from experienced faculty, and a chance to network with other ASU faculty.

Topic: NASA Early Career Faculty

Through the Early Career Faculty (ECF) solicitation, NASA’s Space Technology Research Grants program awards grants to accredited U.S. universities on behalf of outstanding faculty researchers early in their careers. The grants sponsor research in specific high-priority areas of interest to America's space program.

Only accredited U.S. universities are eligible to submit proposals on behalf of their outstanding new faculty members who intend to develop academic careers related to space technology. The proposed research must be led by a single, eligible principal investigator. The proposed principal investigator must be an untenured assistant professor on the tenure track at the sponsoring U.S. university at the time of award. They must be a U.S. citizen or have lawful status of permanent residency. The principal investigator must be the primary researcher on the effort; co-investigators are not permitted. See the solicitation (Section 3.0) for complete requirements regarding collaborators.

Individual grants are funded up to $200,000 per year for as many as three years.
