Space Telescope Grants Administration

The grants administration team is responsible for the administration and management of grant programs awarded by the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) to the astronomical community in accordance with NASA, STScI, the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc. (AURA), and federal requirements, policies, procedures, and standard practices.

All budget and post-award grant processes occur within the Space Telescope Grants Management System, known as STGMS. This system allows users direct access to grant information, including budget submissions and approvals; grant awards and amendments; financial and performance reports; transfer requests, and much more. 

The STScI General Grant Provisions (GGP) provide the general rules and regulations applicable to all grants awarded by the Space Telescope Science Institute. Need access to prior GGPs? June 2016 and August 2006 are available to download.

We are also looking forward to managing the grants program for the future James Webb Space Telescope.


Need an STGMS account? Access to the Space Telescope Grants Management System (STGMS) is maintained by individual institutions. Contact the sponsored programs office at your institution to request access or email to learn who the listed account managers are for your institution.
