Louisiana Materials Design Alliance (LAMDA) Seed Funding Track 3: Core User Facilities Awards
June 30th, 2022

Through Federal/State supports, an ecosystem of Core User Facilities (CUF) at LSU, Louisiana Tech, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Tulane University has been established, which includes the Advanced Manufacturing and Machining Facility (AMMF), the Materials Manufacturing, Testing, and Evaluation Facility (MMTEF), the Shared Instrumentation Facility (SIF), the Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM), the Institute for Materials Research and are given access at the same rates charged to the on-campus users. Collectively, these are called LAMDA Core User Facilities (LAMDA-CUF), https://www.lsu.edu/eng/cimm/CUF/index.php. This RFP is designed to facilitate science and engineering (S&E) research, education and training opportunities for faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate and undergraduate students by providing access for qualified proposals to the LAMDA-CUF.


LINKS with Industry, Research Centers, and National Labs (LINK)
December 31st, 2021

The Board of Regents (BoR) solicits proposals to facilitate science and engineering (S&E) research, education and training opportunities for faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate and undergraduate students. Funding for this program is available under Louisiana’s NSF EPSCoR (Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) award. The Links with Industry, Research Centers, and National Laboratories (LINK) program will be administered through the BoR’s Office of Sponsored Programs and will operate under the guidance of the State’s EPSCoR Committee.


Louisiana Materials Design Alliance (LAMDA) Seed Funding Track 1 A: Single Investigator Award
November 30th, 2021

The Louisiana Materials Design Alliance (LAMDA), an NSF EPSCoR RII Track-1 project, solicits proposals for LAMDA Seed Funding Track 1 A: Single Investigator Award to support research projects relevant to LAMDA’s research themes.

Supervised Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
November 30th, 2021

The LA EPSCoR Supervised Undergraduate Research Experiences (SURE) program seeks to increase the participation of women and other underrepresented minorities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields by fostering opportunities for such students who conduct supervised research under the mentorship of a faculty member in areas directly related to materials and advanced manufacturing themes.


LA FY2022 NASA EPSCOR CAN
November 18th, 2021

This Request for Pre-Proposals (RFP) is being issued in anticipation of the release of the FY2022 NASA EPSCoR Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) Competitive Research Award (CRA). The FY2022 CRA is expected to be similar to the previous solicitation, number NNH21ZHA004C, which is available on the Louisiana NASA EPSCoR website: http://lanasaepscor.lsu.edu/research-implementation/ (you may have to copy and paste the link into your browser). It is highly recommended that you closely review last year’s solicitation in advance of preparing your pre-proposal. As soon as the new solicitation is released by NASA, we will make it available via our websites and email distribution lists.
