Funding Opportunity ID:329870
Opportunity Number:NNH21ZHA003C
Opportunity Title:MUREP/SMD Research Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry (OCEAN)
Opportunity Category:Discretionary
Opportunity Category Explanation:
Funding Instrument Type:Grant
Category of Funding Activity:Education
Category Explanation:In support of NASA’s ocean-focused research, the Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP)/Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Research Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry (OCEAN) activity is established to strengthen and develop the research capacity and infrastructure of Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) in areas of strategic importance and value to NASA’s mission and national priorities. Overall, OCEAN awards seek to improve understanding of the structure and function of global aquatic ecosystems, their interactions with the atmosphere, terrestrial and cryospheric systems, and the ocean’s role in the cycling of the major biogeochemical elements. This is done by enhancing the capability of institutions to participate in funding opportunities, such as Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES), and to support the Agency’s advancement of science to achieve a deep scientific understanding of our planet. Proposals are sought from MSIs that will respond to one of two objectives that address the OCEAN goal. The goal and objectives of OCEAN awards are as follows: Goal 1: Quantitative Analyses of Vulnerability and Shifts of Aquatic Biology and/or Ecosystems in Response to Climate Change. Objective 1.1: Quantitative remote sensing analyses of impacts and/or vulnerability of aquatic ecosystems to climate variability and change. Objective 1.2: Improve understanding of carbon cycle processes and feedbacks in aquatic critical zones that are particularly vulnerable to environmental changes. Proposals shall also include support for MSI undergraduate/graduate student direct involvement in the proposed research for the duration of the project. All proposed activities shall address the requirements outlined in this appendix and in the broader EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES IN NASA STEM 2021 (EONS-2021) at https://nspires.nasaprs.com/external/viewrepositorydocument/cmdocumentid=790184/solicitationId=%7BEA5D86D9-5039-0BD8-B437-D19C5816F6D3%7D/viewSolicitationDocument=1/Engagement%20Opportunities%20in%20NASA%20STEM%20(EONS)%202021_Final_v3.pdf
CFDA Number(s):43.008
Eligible Applicants:Others (see text field entitled “Additional Information on Eligibility” for clarification)
Additional Information on Eligibility:U.S. colleges and universities designated by the Department of Education as Minority-Serving Institutions, including Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian-Serving Institutions (ANNH), American Indian Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCU), Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISI), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Native American-Serving Nontribal Institutions Program (NASNTI), Predominately Black Institutions (PBI), and Minority-Serving Community Colleges (includes community colleges with the above designations)
