LSST Discovery Alliance (LSST-DA) hosts a suite of programs and funding opportunities designed to maximize the impact of Rubin’s LSST through innovation, inclusion, and interdisciplinarity. Our intention is to set an example for how science can be done and who’s at the table.
Our flagship program, funded by the Templeton Foundation, is a unique three- to four-year fellowship designed for post-doctoral, early-career researchers in both astrophysics and social sciences. (Director, J. Sokoloski – LSST-DA)
A two-year training program, based at Northwestern University, that develops diverse astronomy graduate students with the essential skills for science with large, complex datasets. (Director, A. Miller – NW)
Previously the Enabling Science Grants, these small grants have a big impact by supporting bold ideas, inclusive participation, and interdisciplinarity while engaging students and early-career researchers.
A program for students to attend the annual Rubin LSST meeting, present LSST-related research, and receive professional development, cohort building, and networking opportunities. (Director, R. Oelkers – TAMU)
