In 2009, Utah was designated a National Science Foundation EPSCoR Jurisdiction. The Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) status enables Utah to compete for federal research funding opportunities not available to non-EPSCoR states.
The iUTAH EPSCoR project ran from 2012 – 2018, and was a statewide effort, reaching nearly all communities throughout the state to explore how factors such as population growth, climatic variability, land use change, and human behavior affect the sustainability of our water resources. 
An interdisciplinary team of Utah and Wyoming researchers received a $6 million, three-year award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop a better understanding of the interconnectivity of natural and human water resources systems – a critical environmental sustainability problem facing both Western states.
The Community Mapping summer workshop was designed to introduce educators to two exciting technologies, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Educators were not only introduced to these technologies but also be given tools and resources for using them to enhance their curriculum.
