Removal of Deadlines for SHINE
June 12, 2017
SHINE is a broad-based, community-initiated research program on the physics of the Sun, inner heliosphere, and interplanetary environment. SHINE is a targeted research program within the Solar-Terrestrial Research (STR) program of the Geospace (GS) section. The goal of the program is to enhance present understanding of, and predictive capabilities for, solar disturbances that propagate to the Earth. We are planning to remove the submission deadline for this solicitation. The revised solicitation will be published later in 2017.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2022 budget of $8.8 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
