Request for Pre-Proposals from NASA WV EPSCoR – The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) anticipates to issue the FY 2013 NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) for the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). The 2013 CAN is expected to be similar to the one issued for the FY2012 funding cycle. The 2012 CAN can be found here.

In anticipation for the upcoming CAN release, NASA WV EPSCoR Committee invites pre-proposals from eligible faculty for the FY 2013 NASA EPSCoR program. West Virginia may submit a package containing up to two proposals. Each proposal may request up to $750,000 in federal funds for a three year period. A cost share of at least 50% from non-federal sources is required. NASA will fund successful projects individually from the state proposal packages.

The timeline for proposal submission is as follows: 

January 18, 2013 – All pre-proposals must be submitted to NASA WV EPSCoR via email (

January 25, 2013 – PIs will be notified as to which two pre-proposals have been selected by NASA WV EPSCoR Committee, and given final instructions and budget constraints, if NASA has released the FY 2013 by then.
