Multi-Cycle Call for Proposals
August, 2009
Multi-Cycle Treasury Programs:
Call for Proposals
Policies, Procedures &
Phase I Proposal Instructions
Call for Proposals
We invite scientists to participate in proposing for Multi-Cycle Treasury programs using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The telescope and its instruments were built under the auspices of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA). Management of HST’s scientific program is carried out by the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). Up to 750 orbits per cycle, starting in Cycle 18, will be available for MCT Programs. The intent is to provide astronomers with the opportunity to tackle key scientific questions that cannot be fully addressed through the standard time allocation process.
Non-binding Notice of intent deadline: Friday August 7 2009, 8:00 pm EST
Phase I Deadline: Wednesday November 18 2009, 8:00 pm EST

Who’s Responsible
The STScI Science Policies Group (SPG), within the Science Mission Office (SMO), is responsible for the HST science program selection process. The Head of the Science Mission Office is Neill Reid. SPG staff includes astronomers Claus Leitherer (Head), Daniel Apai, Bob Williams, Technical Manager Brett Blacker, and Administrative Assistant Darlene Spencer.
The MCT Call for Proposals was edited by I. Neill Reid, based in part on versions from previous cycles, and with text and assistance from many different individuals at STScI.
