VSGC New Investigator Program (NIP)

2017-18 VSGC New Investigator Program

The New Investigator Program is designed to strengthen Virginia’s research infrastructure by providing startup funding to Virginia Space Grant university personnel who are conducting research that is directly aligned with NASA’s mission.  NASA’s research interests embrace a wide range of science, engineering, computational and other disciplines. 

This opportunity is available to those who have yet to become established researchers.  Awardees must be tenure track faculty who are within the first five years of their academic careers and they must be U.S. citizens. 2017-18 New Investigator Program Request for Proposals.

The request for proposals for the 2017-2018 cycle is due February 27, 2017.

Please contact Dr. Tysha Sanford,, if you have any questions.
