Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Grants (AAG)Information Regarding NSF 16-574 Submissions
All proposals submitted under the AAG solicitation NSF 16-574 are considered to be for a single Program. However, due to a coding error, FastLane is inadvertently requiring proposers to select one of three Programs (EXTRAGALACTIC & COSMOLOGY; GALACTIC, meaning our Galaxy; or STELLAR). To submit your proposal, you should choose the one that you believe to be most suitable for your proposal. NSF staff will consider your selection when grouping proposals for review. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Grants (AAG) Program provides individual investigator and collaborative research grants for observational, theoretical, laboratory, and archival data studies in astronomy and astrophysics. Acceptable research areas include the following: stellar astronomy and astrophysics; the astronomy and astrophysics of our Galaxy; extragalactic astronomy and astrophysics; and cosmology. Proposals for projects and tools that enable and enhance research in those areas are also acceptable. Proposals that are solely or predominantly for the acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of space-based data from NASA-supported missions will be returned without review.
Importantly, proposals about the astronomy and astrophysics of our Sun, the rest of our Solar System, and/or Extrasolar Planets will be handled under a companion NSF solicitation, not under the AAG Program.
