[48.06] HST Cycle 11 E/PO Grant Program

B. Eisenhamer, Heather Bradbury (Space Telescope Science Institute)

Space Science Enterprise education and public outreach goals center on sharing the results of our missions and research programs with wide audiences and using space science discoveries as vehicles to improve teaching and learning at all levels. - the space science enterprise strategic plan

In support of the OSS education and public outreach mission, STScI is announcing the opportunity for current Hubble Fellows and accepted HST Cycle 11 GO/AR/SNAP researchers to submit proposals for an E/PO extension to their "parent" research proposal. The spirit of the HST Cycle 11 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 proposed E/PO program should have some degree of intellectual linkage to the objectives of the "parent" research proposal and/or the science expertise of its Principal Investigator (PI). The goal is to provide K-12 and community college education institutions, pre-service and in-service educators, and museums, science centers and planetariums with current astronomy/space science content. Up to $10,000 per year may be proposed for an E/PO program, with a possible teamed effort of $50,000. The Call for Proposals will be released the first week of February. The deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday, 22 March 2002 at 5:00 p.m. EST.

This poster will provide potential proposers an opportunity to find out more about the grant program.
