Last Call for the 2013 NASA Astrobiology Program Minority Institution Research Support Program

Do you have a colleague at a minority serving institution (MSI) with whom you would like to work with more closely? Do you have a current Astrobiology Program project and would like to host a faculty member from a MSI?

The Astrobiology Program Minority Institution Research Support (MIRS) program, administered by the United Negro College Fund Special Programs Corporation, provides funded opportunities for researchers from minority serving institutions to initiate partnerships with researchers in the field of astrobiology. Past MIRS Scholars have worked with researchers at UCLA, NASA Ames, NASA Goddard, the University of Hawaii, JPL, the University of Wisconsin and Portland State University.

The deadline for the 2013 MIRS Program applications is March 29, 2013.
