Apply for Funding

Every year, the IAU-OAD invites proposals for projects, from around the world, at the intersection of Astronomy, education, and development. Such proposals fit under atleast one of the three Task Forces – (i) Astronomy for Universities and Research, (ii) Astronomy for Children and Schools, and (iii) Astronomy for the Public. Proposals that fit the criteria and are chosen by the OAD Oversight Committee are granted funding to implement their ideas.

This section provides background information for applicants on project design, evaluation, the OAD impact cycle, OAD projects knowledge base and the application process.
