About Wyoming EPSCoR

The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is designed to fulfill the mandate of the National Science Foundation (NSF) to promote scientific progress nationwide. This program is directed at those jurisdictions that have historically received lesser amounts of NSF Research and Development (R&D) funding. Through this program, NSF establishes partnerships with government, higher education, and industry that are designed to effect sustainable improvements in a jurisdiction's research infrastructure, R&D capacity, and hence, its national R&D competitiveness.

Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-1 awards provide up to $4 million per year for up to 5 years, and RII Track-2 awards provide up to $2 million per year for up to 3 years.
