NASA Letter from SARA: China FAQ and New Volunteer Reviewer Form

Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Sunday, July 15, 2012

Dear Colleagues,

If you collaborate with anyone in China you should read our new FAQ. Our appropriation (Public Law 112-55, SEC. 539) contained a brief statement, the bottom line if which is that NASA funds, including ROSES research grants, cannot be used " participate, collaborate, or coordinate bilaterally in any way with China..."

We expand somewhat on what this actually means in practical terms for ROSES grantees in our new FAQ that can be found as a link off our normal ROSES FAQ: or you can get to it directly by going to

Another new addition to the SARA web page is our new volunteer reviewer web form: we are currently seeking reviewers for Laboratory Analysis of Returned Samples, Exobiology, and Moon and Mars Analog Missions Activities. You can find this form at:

As always, selection statistics can be found on the grant stats page at: community announcements on the solicitations page at: and all clarifications, corrections and amendments to ROSES-12 can be followed conveniently on our ROSES 2012 RSS feed at: /roses-2012/
