ROSES 2013 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 24: Appendix B.5 H-GCR proposal due date is now 10/31/2013

Description: Appendix B.5, Heliophysics Grand Challenges Research proposal due date for proposals is now Thursday, October 31, 2013 because of the Government shutdown.

The goals of Appendix B.5, the Heliophysics Grand Challenges Research (H-GCR) program are specifically designed to support investigations of complex problems that fall within the general realm of Heliophysics and whose full resolution has remained elusive. Work on such problems has traditionally been carried out by independent research groups that employ either observational- or theory and modeling-based approaches. Increasingly, major advances in the field are taking place as a result of the close interactions between observers, theorists, and modelers. Thus, a coherent attack on the most challenging broad problems requires the efforts of a synergistically interacting group of multidisciplinary teams led by a single Principal Investigator, so as to enable deep and transformative science.
The Step-2 proposal due date for Appendix B.5, Heliophysics Grand Challenges Research Program, had been October 11, 2013 but was delayed during the government shutdown. The new due date for proposals is Thursday, October 31, 2013.
On or about October 18, 2013, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2013" (NNH13ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
