University Student Research Challenge - NASA Aeronautics

University Student Research Challenge is now open on NSPIRES and accepting three-page proposals due November 9, 2023. 

USRC seeks to challenge students to propose new ideas/concepts relevant to NASA Aeronautics. USRC will provide students, from accredited U.S. colleges or universities, with grants of up to $80k for their projects and the challenge of raising cost-share funds through a crowdfunding campaign. The process of creating and implementing a crowdfunding campaign acts as a teacher accelerator - requiring students to act like entrepreneurs and raise awareness about their research among the public. 

The solicitation goal can be accomplished through project ideas such as advancing the design, developing technology or capabilities in support of aviation, demonstrating a novel concept, or enabling the advancement of aeronautics-related technologies.
