Research Opportunities in Space & Earth Sciences
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) announced the release of its annual omnibus solicitation for basic and applied research, Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Science (ROSES) 2022 as NNH22ZDA001N on February 14, 2022, on the NSPIRES web page at
ROSES is an omnibus solicitation, with many individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics. Click on the link above to learn more about the wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by SMD.
Awards range from under $100K per year for focused, limited efforts (e.g., data analysis) to more than $1M per year for extensive activities (e.g., 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.
The funds available and the anticipated number of awards are given in each program element and range from less than one to several million dollars, which allows for selection from a few to as many as several dozen proposals.
