WY Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR)

Wyoming EPSCoR is a program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support researchers, students, and institutions in Wyoming by building a robust and diverse research educational infrastructure in the state by supporting and facilitating programs.

The goals of Wyoming EPSCoR are:

  • to facilitate the building of research educational infrastructure
  • to increase the diversity of participants in STEM fields
  • to administer awards from NSF EPSCoR to increase national research competitiveness

Upcoming Events


End of Snow Laramie premiere!

Berry Center Auditorium

6:30pm Friday, December 2

Join us for a screening of the End of Snow, a film by Jane Zelikova and Day’s Edge Productions. See familiar faces from around campus on the big screen discussing climate, climate change, and the Snowy Range. After the film, we will discuss taking an idea from inspiration to completion as well as how science is communicated through various media with scientists from the film and UW community.

A second film, Thin Ice; The Inside Story of Climate Change, further digs into our understanding of the science behind rising global temperatures and will be screened after End of Snow. “We understand there’s a problem, we understand the direction we are going, and we need fixes that are valuable,” explains filmmaker and geologist Simon Lamb. This is an amazing opportunity for science now and in the future.

 "I hope the viewers are inspired to do science because science is really just curiosity about how the world works and can come from unexpected people and unexpected places. In the end, I hope we show that breaking down barriers that silo us into "scientist", "rancher", "skier", or whatever, can really expand our potential and bring innovation to address the impacts of climate change," Dr. Zelikova said.

Who We Are and What We're Doing

The Wyoming EPSCoR Office is located on the University of Wyoming main campus in Wyoming Hall on the 4th floor. These past years have allowed EPSCoR to actively engage Wyoming residents from girl scouts through water resource managers at the city and state level in projects that address the current and future state of the region’s water. Check out how we do what we do!
