The Citizen Science Seed Funding Program (CSSFP) (E.9) element of ROSES aims to support scientists and other experts to develop citizen science projects relevant to NASA's Astrophysics, Heliophysics and Planetary Science Research Programs, and proposals relevant to Biological and Physical Sciences will also be considered on a case-by-case basis. The CSSFP aims to advance the use of citizen science by incubating citizen science projects as they are being conceived or during critical transitions, like the year when they are first launched or beta tested or when the project changes scientific direction. CSSFP awards require relatively short proposals to encourage new proposers to experiment with citizen science techniques; the Science/Technical/Management section has a limit of 6 pages.
ROSES-2020 Amendment 52 releases final text for the CSSFP. Notices of Intent (NoI) to propose are requested by 13 October 2020 and the final proposals are due 11 December 2020. A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document will be posted on the NSPIRES page for this program element under "Other Documents."
