SYNOPSIS

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.
