F.9 Citizen Science Seed Funding Program (CSSFP) aims to support scientists and other experts to develop citizen science projects and to expand the pool of scientists who use citizen science techniques in their science investigations. F.9 CSSFP aims to incubate citizen science projects as they are being conceived or during critical transitions, like the year when they are first launched or beta tested (i.e., when the first group of volunteers is invited to try the project) or when the project changes scientific direction. CSSFP awards have a duration of up to one year only and require short proposals: the Science/Technical/Management section has a limit of 6 pages.
NOTICE: December 8, 2023. F.9 CSSFP has been updated in several ways: Division POCs have been updated, a link to a template for the OSDMP has been added, links to decadal surveys have been included, other broken links fixed, and the Heliophysics funding and expected number of new awards have been increased. New text is in bold. The proposal due date remains unchanged: proposals are due January 24, 2024
