Portales -- Eastern New Mexico University has announced a $50,000 Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities (SENCER) grant project from the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement. 

Focusing on water and energy challenges, the New Mexico Informal Science/Current Research Network Partnership (NMISENet) brings together a group of the states informal science educators with a group of the states university-based researchers, who have a deeper, academic understanding of these issues. By combining their efforts and expertise, NMISENet will develop new and unique ways to engage both students and the general public with the cutting edge scientific research presented through informal science education programs.

New Mexico Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is a university-based federal-state partnership that aims to enhance research competitiveness through investments in research instrumentation, education (at all levels), and cyberinfrastructure. NM EPSCoR involves students and faculty at research universities, four-year undergraduate institutions, community colleges and tribal colleges.
