The Rubin Science Collaborations have partnered with the Heising Simons Foundation to support Rubin preparatory science focused on solar system, Milky Way, variable stars and transients with a kickstarter grant program. The opportunity is highly flexible in terms of who can apply and what projects can be sponsored. Proposals designed to increase capacity and develop opportunities for individuals and institutions that are new to Rubin LSST are especially welcome. Please see https://lsst-sci-prep.github.io/ for more details about the opportunity and how to apply by Sept 30.
The organizers are holding a grants workshop to encourage proposal teams and answer any questions next week, Sept 8 & 9. Please register here.
