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:
Current Track 1 Research Project, the Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics. This multidisciplinary center encompasses new physical and intellectual infrastructure that enables a comprehensive research program linking surface and subsurface watershed hydrology, geophysics, remote sensing, and computational modeling.
Track 2 Research Project, A Utah-Wyoming Cyberinfrastructure Water Modeling Collaboration. CI-WATER’s cyberinfrastructure team focuses on expanding Utah and Wyoming’s capacity to use high-performance computing for innovative research.
The Challenge Grant program helps support universities in the development of their own Let’s Talk About Water water science outreach events. Primarily supported by the Johnson Family Foundation, the Challenge Grant program is awarded on a dollar for dollar matching basis - meaning that CUAHSI matches funds raised by the university (up to $3,000).
