The 2022 NASA M-STTR solicitation is accepting proposals from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) now through May 23rd, 2022. Offered through a collaboration between NASA’s Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) and the NASA SBIR/STTR program, M-STTR planning grants are intended to help MSI researchers prepare for the next NASA STTR Phase I solicitation.
Awardee MSIs receive funding and NASA guidance to help forge a partnership with a small business and put together an action plan for responding to the annual NASA STTR solicitation. By stimulating creative engagements between MSI researchers and small businesses, M-STTR aims to maximize the potential for long-term collaborations and enhance the opportunities provided through the NASA STTR program.
For all interested MSIs, we encourage you to actively prepare for the next NASA STTR Phase I solicitation by applying to M-STTR today.
