Proposals Due August 13, 2020


Eligible proposers include U.S. non-profit science museums, planetariums, youth-serving organizations, and libraries. This is a one-time opportunity with a shorted response period. Proposed projects shall offer innovative remote or distance-learning opportunities, capable of reaching a diverse set of students in grades K-12 with relevant NASA content during the 2020-2021 school year and/or summer 2021 and continuing beyond. Projects will be designed to have specific focus on underserved and/or underrepresented students in STEM and helping to minimize the inequities faced by communities without ready access to information and communication technology.  Awards will range from $100k-$175k for a maximum duration of one year.
