Grants Administration

Overview

The Grants Administration (GRA) Office is responsible for the management and administration of grant programs awarded by STScI to the astronomical community in accordance with NASA, STScI, AURA, and federal requirements, policies, procedures and standard practices.

The STScI General Grant Provisions (GGP) provide the general rules and regulations applicable to all grants awarded by STScI.

All grant actions occur in STGMS, a web-based application that allows users direct access to grants information. These actions include, but are not limited to grant budget submissions and approvals; grant awards and amendments; no-cost extensions; financial and performance reports; transfer requests; etc.

James Webb Space Telescope

Director's Discretionary Early Release Science (DD ERS) Program

Based on the recommendations made by the JWST Standing Review Board, NASA is re-scheduling the JWST launch window for 2020. Given those circumstances, STScI will delay the Cycle 1 GO/AR science proposal deadline until no earlier than February 1, 2019.

The ERS budget proposal deadline previously set for Monday, April 16, 2018 has been postponed to a date TBD. An updated deadline will be provided after a revised schedule has been developed.

Please submit questions related to the Cycle 1 Call for Proposals to the JWST Help Desk https://stsci.service-now.com/jwst.

Automatic Access to Post-Award Funding

Note that in October 2017 the Space Telescope Grants Management System (STGMS) was upgraded to release funding allocations automatically so that there will be no disruption in STScI-funded research at the grantee institutions. View document for details.
