The National Science Foundations awards research grants to Arkansas, Louisiana, West Virginia and Guam through its Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) awards four grants ranging from $6 million to $20 million to bolster the science and engineering infrastructure on the Island of Guam and in the states of Arkansas, Louisiana and West Virginia. The grants are made possible through the organization’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) for the production of world-class research and scientific resources, according to an article from the NSF. The awards support fundamental research, STEM education and workforce development.

Louisiana and Arkansas “are developing innovative approaches for producing technologically relevant materials that can advance localized commercialization and manufacturing economies,” according to the NSF. West Virgina and Guam will focus on water resource sustainability. EPSCoR aims to promote the success of early career scientists and engineers.
