Amendment 16: New Opportunity: F.22 Research Initiation Awards
The new Research Initiation Awards Program (F.22) solicits proposals from non-R1 institutions to provide support for investigators and their students at institutions underrepresented in the SMD ecosystem. RIA has two principal programmatic objectives:
- Enable investigators at institutions underrepresented in the SMD ecosystem to initiate activities that, over the course of a two-year period, will provide the foundation for a competitive, sustainable, and productive program of research.
- Enable undergraduate students affiliated with the proposing investigator to perform cutting-edge research in SMD-relevant field.
ROSES-2023 Amendment 16 releases text and due dates for a new opportunity: F.22 Research Initiation Awards. Optional Notices of Intent may be submitted until May 18, 2023, and proposals are due July 18, 2023. This opportunity has special eligibility restrictions, see Section 2. This program will evaluate proposals using dual-anonymous peer review, see Section 4.
A joint informational webinar about this opportunity and F.23 Bridge Program Seed Funding will occur May 24 1-2:30 p.m. Eastern Time via Zoom. The webinar will: (1) provide an overview of both programs (2) describe the proposal process and requirements, and (3) allow for webinar attendees to submit questions. Those who register at https://go.nasa.gov/404qx1j will receive a Zoom calendar invitation that will get updated with Connect information. Questions regarding F.22 RIA, the webinar, or to request reasonable accommodations for the webinar, may be directed to Maggie Yancey at firstname.lastname@example.org. This information will also be posted under "Other Documents" on NSPIRES pages for both F.22 and F.23.
On or about April 18, 2023, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2023" (NNH23ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at https://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2023
