|HST Call for Proposals and Primer|
Proposals for funding will be accepted from Universities, nonprofit research institutions, private for-profit organizations, and Federal employees. Only U.S. PIs and CoIs are eligible to request funding.Non-U.S. scientists are eligible to apply for HST time but are not eligible for funding from STScI. "Non-U.S." refers to a scientist who has a contractual affiliation (e.g. employment, grant, contract, research funding, etc.) with a non-U.S. institution regardless of where he or she resides. STScI grant funding may not flow through a U.S. Investigator to Investigators at foreign institutions.Proposers who have questions about their eligibility for funding should contact the STScI Grants Administration Office (see Appendix A.1).Proposals by non-U.S. PIs that have one or more U.S. CoIs must designate one of the U.S. CoIs as the ‘Administrative PI’ of the program (see Section 8.13). This person will have overall oversight and responsibility for the budget submissions of the U.S. CoIs.When a U.S. investigator obtains grant funds for a project that also involves non-U.S. investigators, no funding may flow through the U.S. investigator to the non-U.S. investigators.Unaffiliated Scientists
U.S. scientists not affiliated with the types of institutions listed above are required to contact the STScI Grants Administration Office (see Appendix A.1) to determine if they are eligible for STScI funding. It is the responsibility of STScI to ensure that grants are awarded to organizations with financial management systems that meet the standards described in Sections III-VI of the STScI General Grants Provisions (General Grant Provisions of the Space Telescope Science Institute).
