The NAI Minority Institution Research Support (MIRS) Program provides opportunities for researchers from qualified Minority Institutions to initiate joint partnerships with researchers in the field of astrobiology. The NAI-MIRS program provides summer sabbaticals, follow-up support, and travel opportunities for faculty and students from Minority Institutions.
The purpose of this initiative is to increase the attendance and participation of underrepresented scientists in astrobiology research laboratories, at professional conferences, and as members in NAI Teams. Application materials and detailed information for sabbaticals starting Summer 2007 are available at http://www.nai-mirs.org/. [Source: Astrobiology Institute Newsletter]
