The U.S. Agency for International Development seeks proposals for Development Innovation Ventures grants. Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) supports bold ideas that could change millions of lives at a fraction of the usual cost. DIV welcomes applications from U.S. and non-U.S. organizations, individuals, and nonprofit and for-profit organizations, provided their work
is in a country where USAID operates.

NMSGC is expecting to support New Mexico student teams that want to participate in the WERC Design Contest, Task 1: Silver-based Microbial Check Valve for Spacecraft Potable Water Systems on April 7-10, 2019. The WERC Environmental Design Contest is a unique design competition that brings industry, government, and academia together in search for improved solutions to environmental challenges. Task 1 was designed by NASA with the purpose of seeking a design for what might be described as a “microbial check valve” that is able to reliably and efficiently deliver a measured supply of ionized silver to the spacecraft water supply while not allowing back-flow of water through the check valve.
Task 1 is the only WERC task that qualifies for support through NM Space Grant.

New Mexico Space Grant Consortium is supporting the Apollo Student Challenge, which provides an opportunity to middle and high school students to participate on hands-on application of current technology so that eventually they participate in the development of new technologies to study earth and beyond.
Teams that want to participate are required to be affiliated with an organization such as a school, library, museum, after school program, or club. The top team from each regional challenge hub will receive a trip to Johnson Space Center in August 2019. All organizations must register by March 31, 2019, to participate in ANGLeS, regardless of whether they intend to participate in a Regional Challenge Event. New Mexico State University is the host for the NM teams.
