Current but no Longer Receiving Proposals
The Program for Research and Education with Small Telescopes (PREST) is designed to address a spectrum of research and teaching needs for a large number of individuals at institutions without observatories or the resources needed to make their existing observing facilities reliable and productive tools for research and training. The PREST activity provides funding and modest operational support for modern, instrumented telescopes in the range of 0.5 to 2.5 meters aperture to organizations or consortia presenting an integrated program of research, student training, and educational programming.
