NITARP 2010 proposal review

Published: March 14, 2010

The NITARP 2010 teams all submitted research proposals for their 2010 projects. We have created a review committee for the 4 anticipated proposals, consisting of roughly half NITARP alumni teachers and half professional astronomers (none of whom are team mentors!). (A BIG thank you to Dr. Peter Plavchan, who has volunteered to chair this committee.) This committee met at the end of February and provided feedback to the teams. The teams then revise their proposals in response, and then the proposals are officially accepted, so the teams will get started on their work in earnest!

As we feared, the January 2021 American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting is going to be online-only. The kickoff workshop for NITARP 2021 would have been associated with this meeting. Because travel and face-to-face meetings are such an integral part of the NITARP experience, we have decided to not form new NITARP teams in 2021. We expect to have teams in 2022, assuming the pandemic loosens its grip. Please let us know if you wish to be on the mailing list to be notified when the application is available.
