NICER Guide for Cycle 4 Budget Proposals
Phase 2 (Budget) Proposal Deadline
U.S. PIs of successful Phase 1 proposals may be invited to submit a Phase 2 (budget) proposal. These invitations will be subject to availability of funding, and based on the proposal rankings as assigned by the Phase 1 peer review process.
Subject to acceptance of the associated Phase 2 cost submission, proposals for standard observations (excluding proposals involving time-constrained observations) assigned a Category A rating will be eligible for funding immediately. Due to the uncertainty of their execution, the remaining accepted Phase 2 proposals will become eligible for funding only after the proposed observations have been carried out. US co-Is on proposals with non-US PIs are not eligible for funding. Phase 2 (budget) proposals are submitted through NASA's NSPIRES system.
The Phase 2 budget proposal deadline for NICER Cycle 4 is May 4, 2022 at 4:30pm EDT.
Phase 2 Proposals for Awarded Time Critical or Target of Opportunity Observations
US PIs of proposals with TC, or ToO observations are invited to submit a budget proposal by the deadline given above. However, the PIs of these programs will not receive funding until a target from their program is observed.
As with all NASA ROSES proposals, final institutional submission is required. Please leave enough time for your institutional process. If your institution requires a NASA grant solicitation number, it is NNH21ZDA001N-NICER.
Phase 2 Proposal Submission Process
