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 and education objectives, the benefits of these projects have sustained and contributed to enhanced research and education capacity and competitiveness beyond each project's research design. Below you can find summaries of current and historic EPSCoR projects in Montana. We currently only have information on projects going back to 2001.
