Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Thursday, December 20, 2018

ROSES-18 Amendment 49: This amendment releases DRAFT text for the NASA Planetary Science Early Career Award in program element C.21.


The NASA Planetary Science Early Career Award supports the research and professional development of outstanding early-career scientists, and serves to stimulate research careers in areas supported by the Planetary Sciences Division. The support of this program will allow key individuals to play an increasing role in the community — to achieve high-impact science and to help lead the field through development of new concepts, technologies, and methods.


This program consists of a two-tiered nomination and selection process. The first tier is to check a box when a regular ROSES research proposal is submitted. Early-career Principal Investigators, whose proposals are selected via normal review processes, will be invited to enter the second tier of the application. Invitees will be asked to submit an application package to be considered for the NASA Planetary Science Early Career Award. The Planetary Science Division intends to select approximately five (5) Early Career Awards per year.


This amendment releases DRAFT text for NASA Planetary Science Early Career Award program in C.21. Comments on the draft text are due by January 21, 2019. The final version of this program will be part of ROSES-2019. This program will not solicit proposals through ROSES-2018.


On or about December 20, 2018, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2018" (NNH18ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
