NSF EPSCoR now requires that ALL supported projects be aligned with the current themes of KY NSF EPSCoR research. Applicants must submit a statement relating proposed work current KY NSF EPSCoR research thrusts.
The areas of work KY NSF EPSCoR can support will be interpreted broadly, but applicants must be able to show a clear, direct, and convincing connection to our research thrusts. Extra consideration will be given to projects that more closely align to our annual goals and objectives.
For RA applicants, this will require showing how proposed work will directly support the research activities of the main thrusts.
For URE and EI proposals, this requires that the students supported will be involved in any of:
- additive manufacturing of embedded devices,
- robotics and human-machine interface, or
- synthetic biology and plant-based materials
All K-12 activities, EOC and M-G awards, the proposed activity must relate to:
- additive manufacturing
- robotics, or
- plant-based materials
