Purpose of Initiative

Wyoming EPSCoR is a program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support researchers, students, and institutions in Wyoming by building a robust and diverse research educational infrastructure in the state by supporting and facilitating programs.

The goals of Wyoming EPSCoR are:

  • To facilitate the building of research educational infrastructure
  • To increase the diversity of participants in STEM fields
  • To administer awards from NSF EPSCoR to increase national research competitiveness

The Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is designed to fulfill the mandate of the National Science Foundation (NSF) to promote scientific progress nationwide. This program is directed at those jurisdictions that have historically received lesser amounts of NSF Research and Development (R&D) funding. Through this program, NSF establishes partnerships with government, higher education, and industry that are designed to effect sustainable improvements in a jurisdiction’s research infrastructure, R&D capacity, and hence, its national R&D competitiveness.

Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-1 awards provide up to $4 million per year for up to 5 years, and RII Track-2 awards provide up to $2 million per year for up to 3 years. Wyoming is currently in year five of a Track-1 award supporting the Wyoming Center for Hydrology and Geophysics.
