Financial Support

Travel Support

For each observing program scheduled on an NRAO telescope, reimbursement may be requested for one U.S. investigator to travel to the NRAO to observe, and for one U.S. investigator to travel to the NRAO to reduce data. Reimbursement may be requested for a second U.S. investigator to either observe or reduce data provided the second investigator is a graduate or undergraduate student. The NRAO will in some cases provide travel support to the Observatory for research on archival data.

Preprint and Page Charges

When requested, NRAO will pay 100% of the page charges for authors at U.S. scientific or educational institutions when the paper reports original observations utilizing any NRAO instrument(s), and the paper contains original analyses of archival data and/or is based on a significant amount of previously unpublished archival data. NRAO may, in some cases, support page charges for papers containing original instrumental or theoretical analyses with direct implications for existing or planned NRAO facilities.

Robert L. Brown Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award

The Robert L. Brown Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award is administered by AUI and the NRAO on behalf of Bob Brown’s friends and family to honor Bob’s life and career. The Award is given each year to a recent recipient of a doctoral degree from any recognized degree granting institution in the United States, and is substantially based on new observational data obtained at any NRAO facility and considered to be of an exceptionally high scientific standard.
