Appendix M: MUREP Aerospace High-Volume Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management

Cooperative Agreement (MUREP High Volume)




 This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) entitled Engagement Opportunities in NASA STEM (EONS) – 2021, solicits proposals for competitive funding opportunities in support of the Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) administered by NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement. EONS 2021 is an omnibus announcement that includes a wide range of NASA science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) Engagement opportunities for basic and applied science and technology research and education. Specific opportunities will be issued periodically throughout the year as Appendices to this solicitation with individual requirements and milestones.


The following Appendix to EONS-2021 has been released: MUREP Aerospace High-Volume Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Cooperative Agreement (MUREP High Volume).


  – Proposals now due December 10, 2021 at 11:59pm Eastern Time


The Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) in NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement (OSTEM), in collaboration with the NASA Aeronautics Research Institute (NARI) of the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) calls for eligible U.S. Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to lead post-secondary education teams that will collaborate with other domestic entities including small businesses, to respond to gaps in the U.S. aerospace high-volume manufacturing supply chain ecosystem. The goal for MUREP High Volume is to develop a significant scientific, engineering, and/or technology manufacturing and supply chain network led by MSIs that aligns with aerospace NASA and/or industry (public or private) high-volume manufacturing and supply chain ecosystem needs for national competitiveness.


Awards will be made up to a maximum of $250,000 per year for 3 years. For general inquiries,
