In FY 2002, the Advance Fellows Competition in Geosciences received a
total of 26 eligible proposals (5 in Atmospheric Sciences, 9 in Earth
Sciences, and 12 in Ocean Sciences). Of those proposals, six were deemed
competitive for funding. The success rate for this part of the ADVANCE
initiative throughout the Foundation was less than 20 percent. In GEO,
the success rate was slightly higher at about 23 percent. These Fellowships
are highly competitive three-year awards that allow the Principal Investigators
to develop and advance their independent research careers. We congratulate
our 2002 ADVANCE FELLOWS.
