Student Support

by Gustaaf Van Moorsel last modified Jun 17, 2016 by Dana Balser

The NRAO maintains a program to support research by students, both graduate and undergraduate, at U.S. universities and colleges. This program is intended to strengthen the proactive role of the Observatory in training new generations of telescope users. Regular or Triggered proposals submitted for the VLA, the VLBA and the GBT are eligible. Large proposals for the VLA, the VLBA, the GBT, and any combination of these telescopes are also eligible.

Starting with Semester 2013B (1 February 2013 deadline), new applications to the Student Observing Support (SOS) Program will be solicited from successful proposal principal investigators following the release of Semester 2013B proposal dispositions. The PST will no longer be used to submit SOS requests. An online application system will be used to collect SOS proposals from successful PIs. Contact Jeff Mangum with questions. See the NRAO SOS proposal information page for further information:
