The Iowa NASA EPSCoR Office is now soliciting for pre-proposals from our research community for both the NASA EPSCoR International Space Station (ISS) Flight Opportunity Award and the NASA EPSCoR Research Award

Iowa is allowed to submit only one proposal. Solicitation of pre-proposals prior to release of the FY2022  NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) will provide the Iowa NASA EPSCoR Office review committee time to select one strong pre-proposal in each award type to move forward to full development. The ISS Flight Opportunity added a “Sub-Orbital” component in FY2021, which Iowa is allowed a submission to as well. It is yet unknown if NASA will continue to solicit for this for FY2022. Past solicitations have generally stayed the same in research topics, therefore the previous year’s CANs are included in the RFPs.
Any questions can be directed to Links for pre-proposal submission are in the RFPs.

International Space Station ISS Flight Opportunity (and Sub-Orbital) Pre-Proposals    Preproposal due September 10, 2021.

Research Award Pre-Proposals for the anticipated NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice
Preproposal due October 22, 2021.


The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Office of STEM Engagement, in cooperation with NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD), Human Exploration & Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD), Science Mission Directorates (SMD), the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), and NASA’s nine Centers, plus the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), solicit proposals for the NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
