Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2014

Dear Colleagues,
This is the letter from SARA, a short update for NASA scientists. Our omnibus solicitation "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences" (ROSES) for 2014 will be released on or about Friday February 14, 2014.

As always, we are calling for proposals on a wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences, including, but not limited to: theory, modeling, and analysis of SMD science data; aircraft, scientific balloon, sounding rocket, International Space Station, CubeSat and suborbital reusable launch vehicle investigations. will take you to the main web page for ROSES where you can download PDF versions of ROSES and find links to tables of due dates and the new version of the guidebook for proposers.

There are some significant changes from last year:

  1. Appendix C, The Planetary Science Division research program, has been restructured and all calls except the Early Career Fellowship program will use the 2-Step proposal submission process. See C.1 and individual calls in Appendix C for details
  2. The Cross Division Program known as "Origins of Solar Systems," has been changed to the Exoplanet Research Program. See E.3 for details.
  3. B.2 H-SR, and B.4 H-GI will require submission of Step-1 proposals that are up to three pages in length and will be reviewed. While most due dates will be approximately the same as they were for ROSES-2013, the Step-2 due dates for H-GI and H-SR, are later to accommodate the Step-1 review process. See B.1 and individual calls in Appendix B for details.
