Call for Proposals - Antarctic Research Solicitation
Office of Polar Programs/Antarctic Science Division
National Science Foundation
The Office of Polar Programs, National Science Foundation (NSF), has released the 2010 Antarctic Solicitation (NSF 10-543) for support of projects in Antarctica during 2011-2012 or projects in the United States beginning in early 2011.
This year's deadline, Tuesday, 25 May 2010, has been advanced relative to prior years. In response to recommendations by the recent Antarctic Science Committee of Visitors regarding the need to assess field support requirements in an accurate and timely way, and with the goal of streamlining decisions for award or decline, changes have been made to the way that field support information is gathered and the way that some items are budgeted. See the field support section of this solicitation for important information about requesting support. Planners at the support contractor are available to assist investigators with questions about field or logistical support.
Some support information previously included in the solicitation has been moved to a new section on the Antarctic Sciences Division's web site. This information is available at:
Other important support information can be found on the U.S. Antarctic Program portal's Information for Proposers page at:
