Description

The National Science Foundation is offering a grant opportunity titled "Multi-Messenger Coordination for Windows on the Universe". This grant aims to support the development of pathways or networks to increase the coordination and optimization of follow-up observations for Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (MMA) campaigns. The astrophysics community has a diverse and powerful network of ground- and space-based instruments and facilities to identify electromagnetic signatures of MMA events and monitor their evolution. However, there is a need to better harmonize these resources and interconnect users. The grant seeks to address this need by facilitating the coordination and optimization of follow-up observations for MMA campaigns. The total program funding is $7,500,000, and it is expected to award 5 grants. The closing date for proposal submission is May 13, 2024. For more information, please visit the NSF Publication 24-542.

Partnerships in Astronomy & Astrophysics Research and Education
National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation is offering a grant opportunity titled "Partnerships in Astronomy & Astrophysics Research and Education". This grant aims to improve the quality and environment of astronomy and astrophysics research and education by fostering long-term partnerships. The partnerships should provide authentic pathways into the research enterprise and broaden participation in astronomy by encouraging proposals from underrepresented groups. The grant seeks to support institutions that are dedicated to creating opportunities for student and faculty research, with the goal of increasing recruitment, retention, and success of individuals from historically underrepresented backgrounds. The partnerships should also aim to build or strengthen research capacity and foster a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for astronomy and astrophysics research and education. The grant has an estimated total program funding of $1,500,000 and expects to make 5 awards. The deadline for submission is February 18, 2025.

Advanced Technologies and Instrumentation for the Astronomical Sciences
National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation is offering a grant opportunity titled "Advanced Technologies and Instrumentation for the Astronomical Sciences". This grant aims to support the development of new technologies and instrumentation for ground-based astronomy and astrophysics. The program seeks to achieve the science objectives of the Division of Astronomical Sciences by funding innovative and potentially transformative technologies and instruments, even at high technical risk. The supported categories include advanced technology development, concept feasibility studies, and specialized instrumentation to enable new observations that are difficult or impossible to obtain with existing means. Proposals may involve hardware and/or software development and/or analysis to enable new types of astronomical observations. The success of the program is measured by the access to the supported technology and instrumentation development efforts by the US astronomical community. The grant provides individual investigator and collaborative research grants, with an estimated total program funding of $8,000,000. The opportunity is open to unrestricted eligible applicants. The deadline for submission is November 15, 2024. For more information, please visit the [additional information URL](http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf22627).

Division of Physics: Investigator-Initiated Research Projects
National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is offering a grant opportunity titled "Division of Physics: Investigator-Initiated Research Projects". This grant aims to support physics research and the development of future scientists in colleges and universities across various physics disciplines. The grant covers a wide range of research areas, including atomic, molecular and optical physics, elementary particle physics, gravitational physics, integrative activities in physics, nuclear physics, particle astrophysics, physics at the information frontier, physics of living systems, plasma physics, and quantum information science. The NSF encourages Principal Investigators (PIs) to consider efforts to increase diversity in the physics community and promote the participation of underrepresented groups in STEM fields. It is important to note that the NSF strongly encourages single proposal submissions for possible co-review, rather than multiple related proposals to different programs. The grant is open to various types of organizations, including foreign organizations (with support limited to the U.S. portion of cooperative projects), for-profit organizations (U.S.-based commercial organizations with strong capabilities in scientific or engineering research or education), non-profit non-academic organizations (independent museums, observatories, research laboratories, professional societies, and similar organizations directly associated with educational or research activities), other Federal Agencies and Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), state and local governments (state educational offices or organizations and local school districts), and institutions of higher education (two- and four-year IHEs accredited in the U.S.). The grant has an estimated total program funding of $120,000,000. The close date for submission is December 10, 2024. For more information and to submit a proposal, interested parties can visit the NSF Publication 23-615 at http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf23615.
ROSES 2024: D.7 Strategic Astrophysics Technology
NASA Headquarters
The NASA Headquarters has posted a grant opportunity titled "ROSES 2024: D.7 Strategic Astrophysics Technology". This grant falls under the category of Science and Technology and other Research and Development. The funding instrument type for this grant is a Grant. The grant does not require any cost sharing or matching requirement. The opportunity is open to eligible applicants, which include individuals and organizations affiliated with institutions at nspires.nasaprs.com/. However, NASA typically provides funding only to U.S. institutions. The grant notice provides additional information on eligibility for organizations outside the U.S. that propose on the basis of a policy of no-exchange-of-funds. The grant notice emphasizes that this program has MANDATORY Notices of Intent, which are due via NSPIRES by December 13, 2024. Proposers must retrieve the instructions document associated with the application package for this opportunity as there is at least one required form that must be attached to the submitted proposal package. The grant notice explains that the annual omnibus Research Announcement (NRA), Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) - 2024, covers a wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD). The grant awards will be made as grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and inter- or intra-agency transfers, depending on the nature of the work proposed, the proposing organization, and/or program requirements. However, most extramural research awards deriving from ROSES will be grants, and many program elements of ROSES specifically exclude contracts. The typical period of performance for an award is three years, but some programs may allow up to five years and others specify shorter periods. The grant notice highlights that organizations of every type, government and private, for profit and not-for-profit, domestic and foreign, may submit proposals without restriction on teaming arrangements. The grant notice provides tables listing the program elements and due dates, as well as a summary of proposal contents. The full text of the ROSES-2024 "Summary of Solicitation" can be found at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2024. For specific information on this particular program element, proposers are advised to download and read the PDF of the text of the program element of interest from the provided links. The grant notice also provides links to frequently asked questions for ROSES and contact information for general ROSES-2024 policies and procedures. Proposers are encouraged to subscribe to the SMD mailing lists, the ROSES-2024 blog feed, and the ROSES-2024 due date Google calendars for updates and amendments to the NRA.
