Amendment 29: Swift Phase-1 proposal due date delay

The Swift Guest Investigator (GI) Program solicits proposals for basic research relevant to the Swift gamma-ray burst mission. The primary goal of this mission is to determine the origin of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and use these bursts to probe the early universe. Swift is also a valuable asset for obtaining multiwavelength images, spectra, and light curves on interesting Targets of Opportunity (ToOs) and other nontransient sources.

To give more time to proposers who are without power because of Hurricane Irma, this amendment delays the Phase-1 proposal due date for this program element to September 28, 2017. Phase-1 proposals are due by 4:30 PM Eastern time via the via the ARK/RPS web page (see subsection 2.2.1).
