Projects

Montana joined the NSF EPSCoR program in 1980 and has developed a multitude of competitively-funded EPSCoR projects over time. Although each project is designed with unique research, education, and broader engagement objectives, the cumulative impact continues over time. Below you can find summaries of current and historic NSF EPSCoR projects in Montana.
