Summer programs welcome highest-ever number of incoming students and mentors
The summer research programs at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) kicked off in May 2021 with a significant increase in participation. This year’s program welcomed 65 students across all partner locations, a nearly 67-percent increase over the prior year. NRAO and the Green Bank Observatory (GBO) also welcomed 45 mentors to the summer programs—a record number—many of whom are first-time or early-career mentors.
AUI has selected the recipients of its 2021 AUI Scholarship, who each will be awarded a $3,500 renewable scholarship ($14,000 over four years to each scholar) to support their academic careers. Fourteen outstanding high school seniors were selected based on their academic achievement, community involvement, and leadership skills.
The Green Bank Observatory (GBO) invites scientists to participate in the 2022A Semester Call for Proposals for the Green Bank Telescope (GBT). The entire proposal call can be found here. The submission deadline for Semester 2022A proposals is Monday, 2 August 2021, at 17:00 EDT (21:00 UTC).
All proposals should state why the GBT is necessary for the requested observations in both the abstract and science justification.
This agreement is only between the Green Bank Observatory (GBO) and SOFIA. It does not apply to any of the NRAO instruments: VLA, VLBA, ALMA.
By agreement between the GBO and the URSA, SOFIA will be able to award time on the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) to highly ranked proposals that request time on both SOFIA and the GBT. GBO has offered up to 5% of the available open skies time on the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) for allocation by the SOFIA Time Allocation Committee (TAC).
