Amendment No. 11 to the NASA Research Announcement (NRA) entitled "Education Opportunities in NASA STEM (EONS) 2014,"
NNH14ZHA001N, Released March 06, 2015


EONS-14 Amendment 11: New Program Element in Appendix J, NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Aerospace Academy

The NASA MUREP solicits proposals from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to create and implement a NASA MUREP Aerospace Academy (MAA) to increase participation and retention of historically underserved and underrepresented K-12 youth in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

The MAA seeks proposals from MSIs to develop new exciting avenues for attracting students to STEM fields. MAA development establishes a pipeline as well as a mechanism for K-12 learners to be inspired, engaged and educated, utilizing NASA unique content while progressively being challenged.

The goals of MAA awards are to:

  1. Improve STEM literacy by engaging students, family members and teachers through the integration of emerging technologies.
  2. Educate students utilizing a STEM curriculum that meets national science, technology, engineering and mathematics standards aligned to NASA's mission directorates.

The specific objectives of the NASA MAA solicitation are to:

  • Increase the number of historically underserved and underrepresented students interested in careers in NASA-specific STEM careers.
  • Provide skills to parents/caregivers to work with and encourage their children in STEM activities and programs.
  • Involve community groups, business, industry, museums, educational and professional organizations through mentoring, field trips, guest speakers and other MAA activities.
  • Engage students in participatory activities such as hands-on-learning, research, use of advanced technology, peer support groups, and mentoring relationships with professionals who work in the STEM fields.

This Amendment creates Appendix J.
Notices of Intent are requested by April 14, 2015 and proposals are due by June 11, 2015.
On or about March 06, 2015, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement
"Education Opportunities in NASA STEM (EONS) 2014" NNH14ZHA001N will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/.
Questions concerning Appendix J, NASA MUREP Aerospace Academy may be directed to Darlene Walker, MAA Manager, NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC), 7/4, Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH 44135; E-mail: NASAMAA@nasaprs.com.
