ROSES-17 Amendment 51: Release of Heliophysics Early Career Investigator Program Draft Text for Community Comment.
The Early Career Investigator Program (ECIP) in Heliophysics is designed to support outstanding scientific research and career development of scientists and engineers at the early stage of their professional careers. The program aims to encourage innovative research initiatives and cultivate diverse scientific leadership in Heliophysics. This program is designed to foster the E of the DRIVE (Diversify, Realize, Integrate, Venture, Educate) initiative put forward as a high priority recommendation of the 2013 Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey, to educate, empower, and inspire the next generation of space researchers.
This is a DRAFT version of the 2018 ECIP program element posted for community comment. Comments must be submitted in writing to the point of contact for this Program Element listed in Section 6 by January 19, 2018. Individual responses should not be anticipated. Changes to this Program Element or additions to a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page may be made in response to comments, as appropriate. The final text of this program element will appear in ROSES-2018 when it is released on February 14, 2018.
Proposal submission to all calls in Heliophysics will be done by a two-step process, in which a Notice of Intent is replaced by a required Step-1 proposal. The proposal title, science goals and investigators cannot be changed between the Step-1 and Step-2 proposals. This particular program employs a "binding" two-step process which permits only proposers "invited" in response to the Step-1 to submit a Step-2 proposal. The due date for Step-1 proposals is tentatively scheduled to be March 23, 2018, and the due date for Step-2 proposals is June 15, 2018.
On or about December 7, 2017, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2017" (NNH17ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
The NASA point of contact for this program element is Dr. Elizabeth MacDonald who may be reached at
