Release of Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Science (ROSES)-2024

NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD) has announced the release of its annual omnibus solicitation for basic and applied research, Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Science (ROSES) 2024, as NNH24ZDA001N. ROSES is an omnibus solicitation with many individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics. Table 2 and Table 3 of this NASA Research Announcement (NRA) provide proposal due dates and hypertext links to descriptions of the solicited program elements in the Appendices of this NRA.

Awards range from under $100K per year for focused, limited efforts (e.g., data analysis) to more than $1M per year for extensive activities (e.g., development of hardware for science experiments and/or flight). Periods of performance are typically three years, but some programs may allow up to five years and others specify shorter periods. The funds available and the anticipated number of awards are given in each program element and range from less than one to several million dollars, which allows for selection from a few to as many as several dozen proposals.

Electronic submission of proposals is required by the respective due dates for each program element and must be submitted by an authorized official of the proposing organization. Electronic proposals may be submitted via the NASA proposal data system NSPIRES or via

Every organization that intends to submit a proposal in response to ROSES-2024 must be registered with NSPIRES; additionally, organizations that intend to submit proposals via must be registered with Such registration must identify the authorized organizational representative(s) (AOR) who will submit the electronic proposal. All proposal team members must be registered in NSPIRES regardless of the submission system, to allow automatic organizational conflict of interest checking of reviewers.

Potential proposers are strongly encouraged to read Section I(d) of the ROSES Summary of Solicitation and ROSES-24 FAQ#1 that list significant changes from prior ROSES. To learn of the addition of new program elements and all amendments to this NRA, proposers may:

  1. Subscribe to the SMD mailing lists (by logging into NSPIRES and checking the appropriate boxes under "Account Management" and "Email Subscriptions");
  2. Get automatic updates of due dates using the ROSES-2024 due date Google calendar. Instructions will be available shortly after release; and
  3. Check the ROSES-2024 Blog.

Frequently asked questions about ROSES-2024 will be posted shortly after release.

Subject matter experts are encouraged to sign up to be a volunteer reviewer.

Please direct questions concerning the individual program elements in ROSES to the relevant point(s) of contact, and questions concerning general ROSES-2024 policies and procedures to Max Bernstein, Lead for Research, Science Mission Directorate, at
