Грант на антарктичні дослідження NSF 10-543
Наукові дослідження та оперативна підтримка цих досліджень є основною діяльністю, яку Уряд США підтримує в Антарктиці. Ціллю є розширення базових знань про регіон задля сприяння розвитку досліджень глобальних і регіональних проблем, які мають сучасне наукове значення, а також використання Антарктики, як платформи для підтримки наукових досліджень. Американська антарктична програма забезпечує підтримку проведення польових робіт тільки у випадку існування вагомих причин для ведення робіт в Антарктиці (тобто робота може бути зроблена тільки в Антарктиці, або її краще робити в Антарктиці). Програма також підтримує відповідні антарктичні аналітичні дослідження, що проводяться на території країни.

Останній термін подання заявки: 25 травня 2010 року, 17.00 за місцевим часом подавача.

Important changes

The deadline has been advanced relative to prior years.

In response to recommendations by the recent Antarctic Science Committee of Visitors regarding the need to assess field support requirements in an accurate and timely way, and with the goal of streamlining decisions for award or decline, changes have been made to the way that field support information is gathered and the way that some items are budgeted. See the field support section of this solicitation for important information about requesting support. Planners at the support contractor are available to assist investigators with questions about field or logistical support.

Please be advised that the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) includes revised guidelines to implement the mentoring provisions of the America COMPETES Act (ACA) (Pub. L. No. 110-69, Aug. 9, 2007.)   As specified in the ACA, each proposal that requests funding to support postdoctoral researchers must include a description of the mentoring activities that will be provided for such individuals.  Proposals that do not comply with this requirement will be returned without review (see the PAPP Guide Part I: Grant Proposal Guide Chapter II for further information about the implementation of this new requirement).

Antarctic Research
Aeronomy & Astrophysics (AA&A), Earth Sciences (AES), Glaciology (AG), Integrated System Science (AISS), Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences (AO&AS), Organisms and Ecosystems (AO&E)

Synopsis of Program:


Scientific research and operational support of that research are the principal activities supported by the United States Government in Antarctica. The goals are to expand fundamental knowledge of the region, to foster research on global and regional problems of current scientific importance, and to use Antarctica as a platform from which to support research.  The U.S. Antarctic Program provides support for field work only when a compelling justification exists for doing the work in Antarctica (i.e., the work can only be done, or is best done, in Antarctica).  The program also supports Antarctic-related analytical research performed at home organizations.

NSF was the designated lead agency for the International Polar Year, 2007-2009, for the United States and has made a number of awards in response to IPY solicitations (see list of awards at http://www.nsf.gov/od/opp/ipy/ipy_awards_list.jsp). Proposals that make use of IPY datasets or that otherwise build on IPY investments are welcome in the regular programs. 

For information concerning other Federal agencies and their IPY programs, please go to the U.S. government interagency IPY site at http://www.ipy.gov/.
