Nebraska EPSCoR Requests for Proposal (RFPs) that are currently active:

  • OUTREACH: Seeking Education/Outreach/Diversity Proposals -- Submittals Accepted Year-Round
    Nebraska EPSCoR seeks fun ideas that will allow Nebraska students and families to experience science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We especially encourage proposals that reach under-served areas of the state and/or that will make science available to people underrepresented in STEM fields. Any STEM related topic is welcome. Professionals from outside core STEM fields such as business, sociology, art, history, and education are encouraged to submit proposals as well. The only requirement is the proposed event or activity should include strong STEM components. Proposals are accepted anytime throughout the year and are limited to $2,000 per award.
