Request support from OAD:
Although our calls for proposals are open to anyone, we understand that not everyone has training or experience in writing proposals. A potential applicant can request
- Proposal writing support: Applicants will be matched up with an astronomer or other expert with experience in writing proposals. The expert will guide and advise the applicant on the proposal structure and language. This form of support is NOT meant to help the applicant improve their proposal concept but only to communicate it better. Contact us at email@example.com with details of what you need by May 14.
- Translation support: We welcome proposals from people in different countries but due to practical constraints, we only accept applications in English. If that is not your first language or if you do not feel comfortable writing a proposal in English, you can contact us to request translation support. In this case, your proposal will be translated to English exactly as you have written it in your language. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 14.
We depend on volunteers to provide the above forms of support. Hence, we cannot guarantee these services (it will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis) or their accuracy. Nor can we provide assurance of selection if you avail this support.
