Corrections to Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) – SMD’s Graduate Student Research Opportunity

ROSES-2023 Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) solicits proposals for graduate student research projects. The proposal must present a well-defined research problem/activity and a justification of its relevance to NASA. FINESST awards are research grants for up to three years and up to $50K per year. This announcement is about corrections to FINESST.

January 4, 2023. Several corrections and clarifications have been made to FINESST

  • Section 2.5 "Biological and Physical Sciences Research Program" (BPS) has been updated to cite Biophysics and states that proposals relevant to BPS program elements that are not explicitly mentioned in Section 2.5 are eligible.
  • Section "5.1 Review" has been updated to include a direct reference to the assessment of the Open Science Data Management Plan (OSDMP) or the explanation for why no OSDMP is necessary.
  • A new section number "12.39" explains period of performance options, pre-award costing, and the expected timing for award funding to reach the institution.
  • Section 13.15 adds a link to instructions for how to upload manuscripts to the NASA-designated publication repository and confirms that as accepted manuscript versions must be uploaded by the time of publication.

The due date for FINESST-23 remains unchanged: proposals are due February 6, 2024.
