The Third Stand Alone Missions of Opportunity Notice (SALMON-3 = NNH17ZDA004O) Announcement of Opportunity (AO) is an omnibus, meaning it hosts individual flight opportunities each with its own topic and due date. The Table of SALMON-3 PEA Due Dates has hypertext links to each program element appendix (PEA) in SALMON-3.

JWST Master Class
Application due June 03, 2019 via https://stsci.slideroom.com/#/login/program/47933
Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) will host approximately 25 participants for a 4.5-day, in-depth Master Class in Baltimore, MD on November 18-22, 2019. The Master Class will include topics related to James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) proposal planning, including user tools, instrument modes, example science cases, documentation, and help resources, as well as guidance with teaching these topics to others. Graduates of the Master Class are expected to give back to the JWST user community in two ways: by hosting proposal-preparation training activities at their home institution(s) and by serving as a local expert for colleagues in the months before the JWST Cycle 1 General Observer (GO1) proposal deadline in Spring 2020.
This call is open to all potential JWST observers, regardless of career stage or research interests. Advanced graduate students/postdocs and those from geographically-remote areas are especially encouraged to apply. Although not required, we encourage partnered or team applications from geographically-concentrated institutions.
To apply: Submit an online application by 5 p.m. (ET) on June 03, 2019. To learn more about the Master Class, please see the full Call for Applications at http://www.stsci.edu/contents/events/jwst/2019/november/jwst-master-class-workshop.
Funding for Citizen Science in ROSES-2019
Citizen Science is a form of open collaboration in which individuals or organizations participate voluntarily in the scientific process in various ways (see policy document on citizen science). Unless otherwise noted in the program element, proposals submitted to any ROSES-2019 call may be entirely or partially citizen science-based and additional funding may be available for proposals incorporating citizen science. Citizen science projects shall be held to the same rigorous standards as any SMD science program. For more information on ongoing SMD citizen science projects, see https://science.nasa.gov/citizenscientists or email Marc.J.Kuchner@nasa.gov.
Need Advice about ROSES and proposal writing?
On the library and useful links page we have added a new resource that may be useful to those who are new to proposing to ROSES. Presentations by Max Bernstein (NASA HQ) and Christina Richey (JPL) about ROSES how to write a proposal are now available. Both the video (thanks to the SETI Institute) and both PDF and PPT versions of Max's slides may be found in the SARA Library.
