TEAM II / CP4SMPVC: Program Information
2021 NASA Teams Engaging Affiliated Museums and Informal Institutions (TEAM II) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO)
The NASA Office of STEM Engagement solicits proposals from museums, science centers, planetariums, NASA Visitor Centers, youth-serving organizations, libraries, and other eligible nonprofit institutions via the 2021 NASA Teams Engaging Affiliated Museums and Informal Institutions (TEAM II) Notice of Funding Opportunity, NH21ZHA002N.
The 2021 TEAM II NOFO is an omnibus solicitation, offering distinct program elements to which eligible IEIs may propose, issued as appendices to the NOFO. Initially, two program elements are offered, Standard Awards for TEAM II, which is analogous to previous TEAM II NOFOs, and Community Anchor Awards for TEAM II.
Community Anchor Awards for TEAM II
Twenty-one (21) Informal Education Institutions were selected for Appendix I Community Anchor Awards on December 9, 2021. The list is available on the 2021 NASA TEAM II landing page on NSPIRES .
Once awarded, selected proposers will receive new designation as “NASA Informal Education Community Anchor”, which recognizes the institution as a local community resource that addresses identified community needs related to STEM engagement, shares knowledge of NASA STEM Engagement learning resources and opportunities that can help meet that need, and holds programs/activities that utilize and grow that knowledge and impact the audience’s need. The awarded institution benefits from specific use of the NASA Insignia (Logo) and participation in a NASA Informal Education Learning Cohort.
The full press release is available on the NASA website.
Standard Awards for TEAM II
Three (3) Informal Education Institutions were selected for Appendix J Standard Awards for TEAM II on January 19, 2022, and another one was announced on June 2, 2022. The list is available on the 2021 NASA TEAM II landing page on NSPIRES.
