ESTABLISHED PROGRAM TO STIMULATE COMPETITIVE RESEARCH
EPSCoR stands for the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research. The National Science Foundation (NSF) uses EPSCoR to increase research capacity in traditionally under-funded regions of the country—like Kansas. Its primary mechanism for achieving this goal is called the Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) program. These awards enable states like Kansas to enhance their competitiveness for research funding. RII proposals are submitted by Kansas NSF EPSCoR on behalf of the program partners in the state. Other NSF EPSCoR mechanisms include co-funding, workshops, and outreach.
