Education Associates Program
 
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center is releasing a Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) to solicit proposals to administer the Education Associates Program (EAP). The EAP is a unique self-sustaining workforce development education program. The program provides a means for NASA scientists and managers to tap higher education institutions for students and faculty in a quick turn-around process. It provides participants hands-on experience with NASA scientists, engineers and program managers on a range of NASA projects and missions. Students receive academic credit for the experience. Through this program, NASA demonstrates its commitment to attract students into NASA's education pipeline and provides competency-building research and education opportunities for faculty, with a special emphasis on those from underrepresented and underserved groups. The EAP will provide opportunities to students majoring in fields related to NASA's science and technology interests and to faculty in science, technology, engineering and math disciplines.
