OBS/TS Joint Research Grant Contest has a winner

After a tightly contested race, the people have spoken. The contest to rename the OBS/TS-SIS Joint Research Grant closed on June 5, and the winner is OBS/TS FROG (Funding Research Opportunities Grant).

The winning entry was proposed by Karen Selden, who received an Amazon gift card for her efforts. The gifts of free SIS memberships, names drawn from the list of entrants, go to Calmer Chattoo (TS) and Kristina Alayan (OBS). With a hefty level of participation -- 50 proposed new names and 116 votes -- we are gratified that the grant has achieved some notoriety (Funding Research Opportunities Grant).

Please consider what you could do with a technical services research grant - no amount is too small and applications are considered on a rolling basis. More information and an application are available here!

Thanks again to all those who proposed new names and to all those who voted!
