The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is a joint program of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and several U.S. states and territories. The program promotes the development of the states' science and technology (S&T) resources through partnerships involving a state's universities, industry, and government, and the Federal research and development (R&D) enterprise. EPSCoR operates on the principle that aiding researchers and institutions in securing Federal R&D funding will develop a state's research infrastructure and advance economic growth. EPSCoR's goal is to maximize the potential inherent in a state's S&T resources and use those resources as a foundation for economic growth.
The EPSCoR Web site contains a full array of information about the program and its requirements and participants. The site's features are designed to provide a comprehensive overview of EPSCoR, including access to resources for applying for EPSCoR funding.
Among the features of the site are:
State Program pages with specific information about each state's programs, projects, grant activities, outcome statistics, program successes, and NSF Award Abstracts
An Events Calendar with deadlines and important program dates
Links to NSF EPSCoR's instructions on how to apply for funding, including access to online forms
Links to NSF EPSCoR documents and publications
Links to the NSF FastLane system
A fully searchable directory with contact information for EPSCoR administrators and staff in each state, members of the EPSCoR Interagency Coordinating Committee, and NSF EPSCoR staff
