Request for Proposals: LaSPACE GSRA, LURA, & MRS
By Carol Lunn (on 4/6/2016 @ 10:27:41, in Funding Opportunities, read 1351 times)
LaSPACE's three major direct-support student programs, the Graduate Student Research Assistance (GSRA), the LaSPACE Undergraduate Research Assistantship (LURA), and the Minority Research Scholars (MRS) programs are available and are due May 30, 2016. They have revised some of the requirements and restrictions, have updated all of the standardized forms, and have clarified proposal format and structure. Proposals submitted under old guidelines will not be considered for funding. Summaries of each program and guidelines will also be posted on the LaSPACE website: http://laspace.lsu.edu/rfp/index.php).

About the GSRA Program The Graduate Student Research Assistance (GSRA) program is designed to augment the lower than average compensation levels available to promising graduate students on LaSPACE campuses and, thereby, 1) retain more U.S. students for graduate study at consortium institutions, 2) promote diversity, and 3) assist in dissertation research. The GSRA supplement is $8,000 for a 12 month period and can be used for augmenting the student stipend, to defray dissertation related research expenses, and promote student research presentations at national meetings. Cost share on the award is required as is a final technical report. Applications are judged on the basis of aerospace relevance of the research and overall relevance to LaSPACE research and human resource development objectives. Three to five GSRA awards each year.

About the LURA Program The LaSPACE Undergraduate Research Assistantship (LURA) Program is directed at undergraduate science and engineering students who are interested in space/aerospace science and technology. The intent of the LURA program is to supplement and enhance the undergraduate academic curriculum by providing the science/engineering student with a hands-on, mentored research experience relevant to space sciences. A LURA project will be a joint effort between a faculty researcher, who serves as mentor and project Principal Investigator, and an undergraduate research assistant. Awards are for $6000 over one year with no match requirement. The majority of the funds ($5k) are to be distributed directly to the student.

About the MRS Program The intent of the MRS program is to supplement and enhance the undergraduate academic curriculum of traditionally underrepresented students by providing a hands-on, mentored research experience relevant to space sciences with significant financial support going directly to the student, as well as opportunities for professional development. An MRS award is set at $6 k per student for a 12 month period and is used for a supplemental student stipend (>$5K) plus travel/fees for a professional experience for the student, with a minimum amount available for research supplies (<$500). A joint application is submitted by both the student and the faculty mentor.
