CosmoQuest’s Cycle One Call for Proposals has been extended almost two weeks, from its original deadline of November 4, to the new deadline of November 17, 2016! Our deadline was right in the middle of the fall science proposal season – because of that, and to be sure that all potential applicants could get the word and the opportunity to apply, we have pushed the deadline out.

If you are a space or earth scientist with the kind of data/analysis that would benefit from many eyes and minds, then this proposal opportunity is for you. CosmoQuest anticipates up to three awards this cycle. The program offers up to 55K per year for up to two years to partner with the CosmoQuest Team.

Together, you and your team will partner with the CosmoQuest Team to work with citizen scientists to collect, analyze, and publish research, as well as broaden the impact of your work through our Forum, social media, CosmoAcademy and other opportunities.

We are open to any scientific subject represented by the NASA Science Mission Directorate (Earth, Planetary, Heliophysics, Astrophysics, and Astrobiology.) We are particularly interested this cycle in receiving Heliophysics proposals to leverage the excitement generated by the 2017 eclipse of the sun!

To apply: read the full solicitation, and then fill out and submit the application form.
