Guam EPSCoR Plan - The Guam Ecosystems Collaboratorium



The University of Guam (UOG) received a $6M grant from the National Science Foundation – Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) grant (NSF 14-558). The 5-year grant is focused upon studying the effects of climate change on coral reefs specifically on a genetic basis.

This plan describes research and development priorities and goals for the territory. This strategic plan will serve as a “living document” to guide and direct effort, and the use of human, physical and financial resources, towards achieving the goals and objectives of areas of scientific interest that have been identified as “EPSCoR critical” for the Territory of Guam.

About Guam EPSCoR

Guam and Micronesia’s natural resources are invaluable and irreplaceable. Guam not only has the potential for STEM innovation; they have incredible potential for discovery of the yet unknown. The importance of discoveries of new plants and animals is unimaginable, not only in terms of new knowledge and information, but also in their application to the problems and challenges of mankind. The EPSCoR/IDeA funded programs are imperative to provide the financial foundation for future growth.
