Funding available for Kepler & K2 data analysis through ADAP

News article posted on by Geert Barentsen

The Kepler/K2 community is being alerted to the open call for proposals to be submitted to the Astrophysics Data Analysis Program (ADAP), which provides financial support for US-based investigations whose primary purpose is the analysis of NASA space astrophysics data that are archived in the public domain at the time of proposal submission.

ADAP proposals are solicitated annually as part of NASA's Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) solicitation. Typical ADAP funding amounts range between $40,000 per year to more than $200,000 per year, and can run for up to 3 years.

Proposals for the 2017 call are due on May 16, 2017. All Kepler/K2 data that will have been released to the community as of that date will be eligible for inclusion in ADAP proposals. This includes all Kepler prime mission data and K2 Campaigns 0 through 10.

Note: studies of Solar System bodies based on Kepler/K2 data are not eligible for funding under the ADAP, they may be submitted to the DDAP program instead.
