The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Office of Education is accepting proposals under the Education Opportunities in NASA STEM (EONS) 2018 NASA Research Announcement. This is an umbrella announcement for opportunities under the Minority University Research and Education Program, (MUREP), which includes a call for proposals for the following program element:
NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Innovations in Space Technology Curriculum (MISTC).
The goal of the MISTC is to contribute to the preparation, training, and development of NASA’s future workforce.  This will be accomplished by utilizing NASA’s unique contributions in collaboration with two-year/community college Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and other academic institutions to develop innovations in curriculum and experiential learning opportunities.  These innovations will be aligned with the priorities of NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), which is responsible for developing the crosscutting, pioneering, new technologies and capabilities that the agency needs to achieve its current and future missions (
The MISTC solicitation seeks proposals that will contain plans for and be guided by curriculum innovations through partnerships with selected NASA Centers or facilities.  The goal of each proposal will be to address a space technology focus area via all three of the following: (1) revising or developing at least one new course that will introduce and enhance student understanding of space technology development; (2) identifying and addressing campus laboratory equipment needs to support student learning in the course(s); and (3) hands-on learning opportunities related to the course(s) through internships at NASA Centers or facilities.
This Amendment creates Appendix F. Notices of Intent are requested by February 20, 2018, and proposals are due April 20, 2018.
Questions concerning Appendix F, NASA MISTC, may be directed to Ms. Roslyn Soto, NASA MISTC Activity Manager, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA via
