To find and track near-Earth objects (NEOs) to determine which -- if any -- pose a threat to our world, The Planetary Society has established the Gene Shoemaker Near Earth Object Grants. Shoemaker grants are awarded to amateur observers, observers in developing countries, and professional astronomers who, with seed funding, can greatly increase their programs' contributions to NEO research.

UPDATE NOV. 20, 2012: NEW REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: Proposals are now being solicited for a new round of Shoemaker NEO grants. See the Call for Proposals for more information and How to Submit a Proposal for submission details, and the rest of this section and this blog for additional background. Proposals are due February 4, 2013.
