The LaSPACE REA (Research Enhancement Awards) Program is now open. The revised guidelines have been posted to the LaSPACE website for download at http://laspace.lsu.edu/. Please take note of the details listed below.

Program Summary

The overall goal for this Program is to effectively utilize the resources available through LaSPACE as incentive for faculty and students:

1) to develop research competitiveness

2) to develop new research projects or directions, and

3) to foster collaborations among the campuses, as well as with NASA centers and/or other federal laboratories and with the business/industry community.

The REA Program is separated into two component parts or subprograms, The Research Facilitation/Initiation Subprogram and the Visiting Researcher Subprogram.

Only tenure-track or research faculty at the level of Assistant Professor or higher affiliated with LaSPACE campuses are eligible to apply. In cases where support is requested for visiting scientists, the application must be submitted by, and be the responsibility of, a LaSPACE institution faculty member.

All invoices and a final technical written must be submitted to the LaSPACE office within 30 days of the project end date. Photographs and copies of all papers, presentations, and posters generated should be shared with LaSPACE as they occur and collected/referenced in the final report.

Guidelines have been revised. Proposals must follow the current guidelines and utilize the current forms. Proposals submitted under previous guidelines/outdated forms will NOT be reviewed.
