Grant Proposal as PI

Total of outside money in grants brought to Montgomery College $242,189.

Total of outside money in grants brought to Southeastern University $63,003.

Submitted through https://nspires.nasaprs.com the proposal title was Leonardo's Attic: Portraits of Earth Satellite Education Development (SED) The solicitation was NNH08ZNE005N, the acronym GCCE0, PI is Truett, Amanda submission date 10/24/2008, and status pending.  Adel Hali and Harold Williams, me, were Co-I.

Williams, H.A. Astronomy Across the Curriculum: A Workshop for Teachers, A Cooperative Venture Between Montgomery College at Takoma Park and the University of Maryland at College Park to the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) for a Title II Dwight D. Eisenhower mathematics and science act (124 pages, January 27, 1999, $86,011) to train 20 teachers. Proposed with $68,578 money from MHEC proposal number 99-20-217, the rest is institutional match. Funded for $65,000.

Williams, H.A. Astronomy Across the Science Curriculum: A Workshop for District of Columbia Science Teachers to the Department of Human Services District of  Columbia, DHSDC, for a Tittle II Dwight D. Eisenhower mathematics and science act (183 pages, May 26, 1998, $70,684 requested) to train 20 teachers. Funded with $63,003 real money for Southeastern University from DHSDC grant number 8G0071.

Williams, H.A. Astronomy Across the Science Curriculum: A Workshop for Science Teachers, A Cooperative Venture Between Montgomery College at Takoma Park and the University of Maryland at College Park to the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) for a Title II Dwight D. Eisenhower mathematics and science act (114 pages, January 15, 1998, $78,706) to train 20 teachers. Funded with $61,090 money from MHEC grant number 98-20-220, the rest is institutional match.  Keeping on keeping on!

Williams, H.A. Astronomy Across the Science Curriculum: A Workshop for Science Teachers, A Cooperative Venture Between Montgomery College at Takoma Park and the University of Maryland at College Park to the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) for a Title II Dwight D. Eisenhower mathematics and science act (103 pages, January 16, 1997, $74,388) to train 20 teachers. Funded with $58,099 money from MHEC grant number 97-20-211, the rest is institutional match. Funded, obviously persistence pays.

Williams, H.A. Astronomy Across the Science Curriculum: A Workshop for Science Teachers, A Cooperative Venture Between Montgomery College at Takoma Park and the University of Maryland at College Park to the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) for a Title II Dwight D. Eisenhower mathematics and science act (113 pages, November 15, 1995, $74,580) to train 20 teachers. Not funded, came in fourth and eleven were funded obviously some sort of strange politics at MHEC in Annapolis, Maryland. We protested quietly.

Williams, H.A. Astronomy Across the Science Curriculum: A Workshop for Science Teachers, A joint Cooperative Venture Between Montgomery College at Takoma Park and the University of Maryland at College Park to the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) for a Title II Dwight D. Eisenhower mathematics and science act (93 pages, November 17, 1994, $75,187) to train 20 teachers. Not funded, came in third with two cooperative proposals funded. According to the rating comments had this proposal been submitted as a competitive proposal instead of a cooperative one it would have been funded. Unfortunately the Request for Proposals (RFP) was not clear about the difference between cooperative and competitive proposals and the MHEC does not move proposals from one category to another unlike NSF. Next year we will submit this proposal again, but under competitive proposals category like I have done previously, when I did not cooperate with the University of Maryland and did not offer graduate credit to the teachers.

Pedersen, P.M. and Williams, H.A. Connection to NSFNET for Montgomery College to NSF June 1, 1993 funded 93-19-090 for $23,000. We actually did not get the money until middle of 1995.

Williams, H.A. and Olexia, J., Astronomy Across the Science Curriculum: A Workshop for Science Teachers, Grade 6 through 9, to to the Maryland Higher Education Commission for a Title II Dwight D. Eisenhower mathematics and science act (54 pages, November 11, 1991, $55,264) to train 16 middle school teachers. Funded with $35,000 real money, the rest is institutional match.

Williams, H.A. Proposal for the Crystal Vision Award, to the McDonnell Douglas employees community fund, 15 pages plus 15 more pages of supporting material, August 12, 1991. This request was for around $50,000 of new equipment. Not funded, but the local branch of McDonnell Douglas rated this request highly.

Schweizer, F., Boss, A.W., Campbell, A.W., Silver, P., and Williams, H.A., Proposal to Add the Carnegie Institution of Washington's Department of Terrestrial Magnetism to the Space Physics Analysis Network, 9 pages, to NASA on August 4, 1988. I motivated this proposal. I brought a copy of a successful LSU proposal to DTM when I became a postdoc. This grant provided DTM with it first world wide computer network link. Unfortunately for me DTM was connected just before my two year post-doc ended.
