Prospective proposers are requested to submit any questions in writing to NASAMOO@nasaprs.com no later than 10 business days before the proposal due date so that NASA will have sufficient time to respond.
Only US Organizations and Institutions (including NASA Centers) are eligible to apply for this NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN). Proposers to this CAN are required to have the following, no later than the due date:
1) a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, 2) a valid registration with the System for Award Management (SAM) [formerly known as the Central Contractor Registry (CCR)], 3) a valid Commercial And Government Entity (CAGE) Code, 4) a valid registration with NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) (this also applies to any entities proposed for sub-awards or subcontracts.)

NASA's Office of Education's mission is to advance high quality STEM education. Through this solicitation, NASA is strengthening involvement with higher education institutions to ensure that NASA can meet future workforce needs in STEM fields. Participation in NASA projects and research stimulates increasing numbers of students to continue their studies at all levels of the higher education continuum and earn advanced degrees in these critical fields.
NASA MUREP Other Opportunities (MOO) goal is to seek proposals that demonstrate one or more of the following:
-The potential to increase the number of minorities in STEM education areas relevant to NASA.
-Contribute to effective implementation of NASA's educational goals and objectives using NASA's unique assets and capabilities.
-Increase the number of available STEM courses and curricular pathways.
-Attract, retain, and support the success of students in STEM degree programs, and subsequently in NASA-related careers.
- Increase the number of students who complete STEM certificates/degrees from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in STEM.
Every US Organizations and Institution (including NASA Centers) that intends to submit a proposal to this CAN, including the proposed prime award, sub-awardee, or partner must be registered in NSPIRES. Electronic submission of proposals is required by the due date and must be submitted by an authorized official of the proposing organization. Such registration must identify the authorized organizational representative(s) who will submit the electronic proposal. All principal investigators and other participants (e.g. co-investigators) must be registered in NSPIRES regardless of submission system. Potential proposers and proposing organizations are urged to access the system(s) well in advance of the proposal due date(s) of interest to familiarize themselves with its structure and enter the requested information.
Electronic proposals may be submitted via the NASA proposal data system NSPIRES or via Grants.gov. Organizations that intend to submit proposals via Grants.gov must be registered 1) with Grants.gov and 2) with NSPIRES.
Additional programmatic information for this CAN may develop before the proposal due date. If so, such information will be added as a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) or formal amendment to this CAN and posted on http://nspires.nasaprs.com . It is the proposer's responsibility to regularly check NSPIRES for updates to this CAN.
