The NASA Office of STEM Engagement (OSTEM) Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Program solicits proposals from 2-year/community college and 4-year/college or university Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) for the MUREP Curriculum Awards (MCA). The purpose of MCA is to strengthen the research capacity of MSIs, and enable students’ capacity for research in areas of priority to NASA Mission Directorates, while engaging diverse students in authentic learning experiences through curriculum improvement and development and culturally relevant and responsive teaching, learning and support.
