The LSST Corporation (LSSTC) was formed to promote the development, construction, operation and scientific exploitation of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope. At this time the LSST Project is being supported in its full scope by the U.S. National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy. However, in pursuing the broader long-term role of promoting and preparing for science with the LSST, LSSTC is willing to consider applications for Institutional Membership from institutions that can bring substantive contributions with the goal of enhancing off-project activities that maximize the ultimate science output of the LSST. The advantages of and requirements for Institutional Membership in the LSSTC will vary with the phase of the project, but will necessarily become more specific and concrete as the project advances. While there is currently no limit to the number of Institutional Members, each Member is expected to make significant beneficial contributions to LSST.
Institutions interested in joining the LSSTC must submit an application that will be considered by the Board of Directors of the LSSTC on a case-by-case basis. The LSSTC Institutional Membership Application Policy describes the application process and some examples of what new members are expected to bring to LSSTC.
