ND EPSCoR small award opportunities available

A reminder to all tenured and tenure-track STEM faculty: ND EPSCoR has funds available for small research and equipment awards up to $2,500.

To apply for ND EPSCoR small awards, please email Mark Hoffmann ( or mail a request letter to the ND EPSCoR office stating the nature of your request and the amount that you are requesting. The letter should be brief (ca. 1 page maximum), but explicitly address the benefits to your research program that will result in receiving the award.

Unfortunately, we are not able to fund requests whose primary benefits are to course or to curriculum development. Although there is no formal requirement for matching funds, departmental and/or college endorsements and financial support can be taken into account in funding decisions.

Please take note: we are not able to provide small award funding for computers, salary and fringes for faculty or students, or conference travel (should you need funds for conference travel, please contact the Office of Research Development and Compliance).
