NASA Funding Opportunity for Informal Education Institutions

NASA has announced a competitive funding opportunity for informal education that could result in the award of grants or cooperative agreements to several of the nation’s science centers, museums and planetariums. Approximately $6 million is available for new awards.  Proposals for the Competitive Program for Science Museums and Planetariums are expected to use NASA resources to enhance informal education programs related to space exploration, aeronautics, space science, Earth science or microgravity. Full proposals are due Sept. 10.  Proposals for the program are expected to encourage life-long engagement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and focus on NASA’s contributions to these disciplines.  NASA will accept proposals from institutions of informal education that are science museums or planetariums in the United States or its territories. NASA centers, federal agencies, federally funded research and development centers, education-related companies, and other institutions and individuals may apply through partnership with a qualifying lead organization.  For detailed information about the opportunity, click on “Open Solicitations” and look for Competitive Program for Science Museums and Planetariums (CP4SMP) or solicitation number NNH09ZNE005N at: http://nspires.nasaprs.com
