The following table summarizes the content of material to be supplied by the Principal Investigator
in support of Kepler GO proposals. This package is to be uploaded to NSPIRES during the process
of submitting electronic proposals. Descriptions for the
content of each element are provided in sec 2.3 of the
2011 NRA handbook.
The right-hand column provides page limits for the package elements. Page limits on this web site
override the NRA-generic limits within the handbook. Caveats to the page limits are provided as footnotes.
The completed package upload must not exceed 15 pages with the one exception where the target table
exceeds 1 page. In these instances the page limit is 14 + the number of target table pages. Non-US PIs

must submit all items appropriate to their proposal.
