Description:The goals and objectives of MIRO awards are to: Expand the nation's base for aerospace research and development by fostering new aerospace research and technology development concepts aligned with NASA research priorities as defined by NASA Mission Directorates. Objective 1.1 Develop significant scientific, engineering, and/or technology research centers at the MSI that align and engage one or more programs of the NASA Mission Directorates. Objective 1.2 Increase the lead institution’s capacity to contribute to the priorities of NASA’s Mission Directorates (Aeronautics Research, Human Exploration & Operations, Science, and Space Technology) and NASA’s ten Centers. Promote institutional advancement and enhanced research capacity through partnerships among MSIs, other academic institutions, NASA research assets, and industry. Objective 2.1 Increase the lead institution’s ability to sustain research efforts through development of strategic partnerships. Objective 2.2 Increase the lead institution’s pursuit of additional funding opportunities offered by NASA, industry, and other agencies. Objective 2.3 Increase the ability of research leadership at the lead institution to leverage resources to enhance its research capacity at the project, program, department, college, and/or university levels. 3. Strengthen participation of faculty, researchers, and students at MSIs in the research programs of NASA’s Mission Directorates. Objective 3.1 Develop faculty and researcher knowledge and skills in NASA-related research through professional development and NASA research opportunities. Objective 3.2 Increase capacity to develop student knowledge and skills in NASA-related research through curriculum enhancement, redesign, and development at the course, degree, and/or department levels Objective 3.3: Increase capacity to develop student knowledge and skills in NASA-related research through NASA internships and opportunities. 4. Facilitate mechanisms to insure the diversity of workers at NASA and in undergraduate and graduate degrees awarded to students from MSIs in NASA-related fields reflects the diversity of our nation. Objective 4.1 Increase the number of undergraduate and graduate degrees awarded to students from MSIs in NASA-related fields. In order to achieve maximum impact and success of MIRO Centers and Institutions awarded, proposals shall focus on the above goals and objectives. In addition, all proposed activities must address the requirements outlined in this appendix and in the broader EONS announcement. Eligibility: All proposals shall originate from a minority-serving U.S. college or university, designated and listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a Minority Serving Institution (MSI) (see Any arrangement or agreement to have the fiscal management and/or administration of the award performed by a third party is between the awardee and the third party, e.g., an affiliated Board of Regents, University System, or Foundation. Institutions not meeting these criteria are encouraged to partner with colleges or universities that do satisfy the requirements. See EONS NFA for additional information on eligible institutions.
