The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and its Science Mission Directorate (SMD) have established a comprehensive approach to providing education and public outreach (E/PO) to enhance the public’s understanding of space science. NASA and the SMD have incorporated these objectives as integral components of all missions and research programs. The documents that establish the basic E/PO policies and guidelines for NASA and the SMD are as follows:
These documents can also be found at the NASA Science>Researchers>Education & Public Outreach site.
In accordance with NASA SMD E/PO policies, 2% of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Cycle 20 budget has been allocated for E/PO funding. Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) is announcing the opportunity for accepted HST Cycle 20 General Observers, Archival and Snapshot (GO/AR/SNAP) researchers and current Hubble Fellows to submit a proposal for an E/PO supplement to the parent research program. HST Cycle GO/AR/SNAP programs from previous cycles and Guaranteed Time Observers (GTO) are not eligible for an HST Cycle 20 E/PO supplement.
The spirit of the HST Cycle E/PO Grant Program is to encourage collaborative efforts between professional astronomers/space scientists and professional educators that would broaden the knowledge and understanding of the latest discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope. The HST Cycle 20 E/PO proposal must have clear intellectual linkage to the science and/or science theme of the parent research program(s).
There are three HST Cycle 20 E/PO funding categories:
The HST Cycle 20 Call for Proposals is now available. Submission deadline is Wednesday, 22 August 2012.
