The National Science Foundation (NSF) is moving its Data Center IT servers to the Foundation’s new headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, from June 30 at 8:00 PM EDT through July 4 at 6:00 PM EDT, to prepare for NSF staff relocation in August 2017. This move has been scheduled around a holiday weekend to minimize the systems downtime and reduce the impact on the research community and NSF staff.

Please be advised that the NSF website, FastLane, and Research.gov will be unavailable from Friday, June 30 at 8:00 PM EDT until Tuesday, July 4 at 6:00 PM EDT. During this outage period, there will be no access to these websites, proposals cannot be submitted in FastLane, and project reports and cash requests cannot be submitted in Research.gov. However, previously saved information and uploaded documents in FastLane and Research.gov, including in-process proposals and reports, will be accessible after the Data Center move.

We encourage you to share this information with your colleagues. For IT system-related questions, please contact the NSF Help Desk at 1-800-381-1532 or rgov@nsf.gov. Any policy-related questions should be directed to policy@nsf.gov. For additional information about NSF’s relocation, please see https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/issuances/in139.jsp.

We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.

The Louisiana Aerospace Catalyst Experiences for Students (LaACES) Program runs for a full academic year. During the first semester a series of lectures and hands-on activities help build student skills in basic electronics, sensor interfacing, real-time programming, mechanical development, and project management. The second semester is then devoted to applying these skills to the design, development, fabrication, and flight of a small (~500 gram) balloon payload. Payloads from all student teams are then flown at the end of the academic year under the management of LaSPACE. Independent balloon flights by institutions are not supported under LaACES. Proposed efforts that do not conform to this general model are likely to review poorly. • Proposals must be signed off on by the Faculty PI and the Designated Institutional Representative for Sponsored Programs at your institution. • Award funds can be requested up to $10,000; no strict cost-match is required, but some institutional investment will impact our evaluation. • Multiple proposals per institution may be submitted, but no more than one proposal per campus will be funded. • LaACES materials (lectures, electronics kits, etc) are provided to LaSPACE affiliates implementing this program at no additional cost and independent of any funding proposed here. • Only flights conducted under the supervision and direction of LaSPACE Management will be considered for funding. • Please include student demographic forms, if your student reams have already been identified. • All invoices and a final technical report must be submitted to the LaSPACE office within 30 days of the project end date. Photographs and copies of all papers, presentations, and posters generated should be shared with LaSPACE as they occur and collected/referenced in the final report. Guidelines: http://laspace.lsu.edu/rfp/index.php Proposal Due Date: Friday, July 7, 2017
