Second call for applications for the Visiting Experts Programme
The RAS invites applications for grants designed to assist the developing world through astronomy. The RAS-OAD Visiting Experts Programme has now issued its first round of grants and invites applications for a second round of awards.
The Visiting Experts Programme is a partnership between the RAS and the IAU Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) 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. There is no explicit deadline; applications will be assessed whenever they are received. Full details, including instructions on how to apply, are available from the OAD.
