ELIGIBILITY Requirements

Note that Section 3 – Eligibility for STScI Grant Funding, clarifies eligibility
requirements for U.S. investigators.

Please read this section carefully and contact the
STScI Grants Administration Office if you have any questions.

Grants awarded prior to June 2016 are subject to the General Grant Provisions 8/06, and any other terms and conditions in the grant award/amendment documents.

CYCLE 24 Budget Information

STScI plans to electronically notify Program Admin PIs and their institutions of Cycle 24 program approved amounts by October 17, 2016. Should that date change for any reason, we will post an updated message. In cases where program amounts are reduced, the Program Admin PI is responsible for notifying each Co-I of the amount to submit for their revised budget.

GO – Awards are issued within 30 days after the first successful observations.

AR – Awards are issued as quickly as possible (but not later than 30 days) after Admin PI’s receive notification of the approved amount for their program.

All grants are awarded subject to the submission of any overdue reports and/or the submission of revised budgets as required.

In accordance with General Grant Provisions June 2016 Section 11, Pre-award costs are allowable. Please note that such costs are incurred at the grantee’s own risk and STScI is under no obligation to reimburse such costs if for any reason the grantee does not receive an award, or an award is made for a lesser amount than the grantee anticipated.
