NOIRLab Call for Proposals 2024A

September 11, 2023

NSF’s NOIRLab has issued a Call for Proposals (CfP) for Semester 2024A, with proposals due by 2 October 2023 at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST). The 2024A CfP can be found at

Please read the 2024A CfP carefully, as some observatories or facilities continue to have their observing protocols and procedures impacted by COVID-19. 

The Dual Anonymous Review Process (DARP) for all observing proposals submitted to NOIRLab (including proposals submitted for time on the Gemini telescopes) continues in Semester 2024A. This process requires that the abstract, science justification, and experimental and technical design sections in all observing proposals be anonymized. In the second stage of the process, additional non-anonymized information relevant to the proposal will be revealed to the review panel in order to obtain a final ranking.

Detailed anonymization instructions for PIs can be found here, while an FAQ document can be found here

Questions about the proposal form or the proposal process may be directed to

Gemini-related questions may be sent to the Gemini Helpdesk.
