Amendment 22: New Opportunity in ROSES-22: F.18 Innovation Corps Pilot

F.18 Innovation Corps Pilot (F.18 I-Corps) is intended to provide support for participation in the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Program to train faculty, students in higher education, postdocs, and other researchers in innovation and entrepreneurship skills. This NASA I-Corps Pilot employs education through virtual courses to guide participants in the process of developing a business model while supporting teams as they explore the commercial potential of their research. NASA's Science Mission Directorate and Space Technology Mission Directorate are partnering in this opportunity. Awards will be exclusively grants to non-governmental organizations. For-profit institutions are not eligible to propose. Civil servants are not eligible to participate.

ROSES-2022 Amendment 22 adds F.18 I-Corps as a new program element. No preliminary statement (such as a notice of intent nor a Step-1 proposal) is requested. Short course proposals may be submitted at any time, but reviews will occur four times per year, see Table F.18-1 Timeline to Participate in Short Course, for details.

On or about May 27, 2022, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2022" (NNH22ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at,
