In honor of the memory of Henri Chretien, French Professor of Optics and co-originator of the Ritchey-Chretien telescope design, the American Astronomical Society has been named to administer grants to further international collaborative projects in observational astronomy. Emphasis is on long-term visits and the development of close working relationships with astronomers in other countries. Astronomers with a Ph.D or equivalent are eligible; graduate students are not eligible.
The awards may be used to cover any reasonable costs associated with astronomical observational research including travel costs, salary, publication costs, and small pieces of research equipment. If appropriate, the recipient’s family is encouraged to accompany him/her on the long-term international visit.
