The Office of Science, Innovation and Technology is charged with administering such grants as are provided by legislative appropriation. OSIT also applies for STEM and broadband-related grants from the federal government and from private foundations that are compatible with the Office's mission.
Below is a list of current and previous funding opportunities. Grants are funded on a competitive basis. The evaluation criteria and selection process is outlined in each Request for Applications (RFA). Each grant proposal is evaluated by a team of experts assembled by OSIT. Generally, proposals are evaluated based on: the quality of the proposal and adherence to RFA guidelines; the ability of the organization to accomplish the proposal’s goals; and the impact the proposal will have on Nevada. Proposals that are awarded funding are required to submit regular fiscal and programmatic reports that detail progress toward agreed upon performance metrics. Reporting templates can be found on the right side of the page.
