A new programme designed to assist the developing world through astronomy is now accepting its first round of grant applications. The RAS-OAD Visiting Experts Programme is a partnership between the IAU Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) and the RAS which funds astronomers based in the UK to visit institutions in the developing world.
Funding of up to £1,000 per grant is available to support visits and other activities which advance the aims of the scheme. The deadline for this first round of applications is 31 May 2012. Full details, including instructions on how to apply, are available from the OAD.
