NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD) has released its annual omnibus solicitation for basic and applied research, Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Science (ROSES) 2021 on the NSPIRES web page.
Awards range from under $100k per year for focused, limited efforts (eg, data analysis) to more than $1M per year for extensive activities (eg, 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.
Potential proposers are strongly encouraged to read Section I(d) of the ROSES Summary of Solicitation that lists Significant Changes from Recent ROSES.
To learn of the addition of new program elements and all amendments to this NRA, proposers may subscribe to the SMD mailing lists by logging in to NSPIRES and checking the appropriate boxes under "Account Management" and "Email Subscriptions," subscribing to the ROSES-2021 due date Google calendar (instructions will be available here shortly after release), and by checking the ROSES-2021 Blog.
Frequently asked questions about ROSES-2021 will be posted on the SARA page.
