Research

The Florida Space Grant Consortium has a long history of supporting exciting scientific research. With the sponsorship of Space Florida and the Florida Space Research Institute, we have funded projects from across the entire space spectrum and we continue to diversify each and every year. These research endeavors combine the efforts of professors, students, and researchers in projects of true intellectual merit. Learn more about the research we have supported, view successful proposals, and even apply for the funding of your own research.

2014 FSRP

The Florida Space Research Program (FSRP), formerly called Florida Space Research & Education Grant Program (FSREGP), is jointly funded by the Florida Space Grant Consortium, and Space Florida. Its purpose is to support the expansion and diversification of Florida’s space industry by increasing statewide academic involvement in space research, engineering, education, and training programs that are consistent with the state’s space industry priorities. This matching grant program combines state, federal, and other funds for competitive award to projects sponsored within, or conducted in partnership with, the state’s public and private academic institutions. Teaming with industry, nonprofit institutions, and federal agencies is strongly encouraged. K-12 collaboration is also encouraged on appropriate projects.

The eligibility for these grants are as follows:

Grants are intended for faculty researchers from FSGC affiliated universities and colleges. Proposals from non-affiliated Florida universities, colleges, community colleges, and industry will be viewed more favorably if the project involves collaborations with FSGC affiliates. Other non-academic organizations are also eligible to receive grant awards, especially if their proposed projects include involvement with FSGC affiliates.

Preference will be given to proposals that are aligned with NASA’s priorities
