Summary

The National Science Foundation is offering a grant opportunity titled "Solar, Heliospheric, and INterplanetary Environment". This grant aims to support research on the processes by which energy in the form of magnetic fields and particles are produced by the Sun and/or accelerated in interplanetary space, as well as the mechanisms by which these fields and particles are transported to Earth through the inner heliosphere. The grant seeks proposals for research directly related to topics discussed at community workshops organized by the Solar, Heliospheric, and Interplanetary Environment (SHINE) program. The grant has an estimated total program funding of $3,000,000, with an award ceiling of $200,000 and an award floor of $120,000. It is expected that 15 awards will be granted. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The opportunity is open to unrestricted applicants. The closing date for applications is October 7, 2024.

Description

Solar, Heliospheric, and Interplanetary Environment (SHINE) is a broad-based research program supportingenhanced understanding of and predictive capabilities for the processes by which energy in the form of magnetic fields and particles are produced by the Sun and/or accelerated in interplanetary space and on the mechanisms by which these fields and particles are transported to the Earth through the inner heliosphere.Broad-based, grass-roots associations such as SHINE have developed to focus community effort on these scientific questions. Proposals are solicited for research directly related to topics under consideration and discussion at community workshops organized by SHINE under focused topic areas indicated in the program description. Information on the current activities of SHINE may be found at the following web site: http://www.shinecon.org
