ROSES-18 Amendment 3: A Lunar emphasis has been added to a number of program elements in Planetary Science (C.2, C.3 C.6, C.7, and C.14). As a result, the Step-1 due date for C.2 Emerging Worlds has been delayed.
This year the Planetary Science Division is particularly soliciting proposals that focus on the Moon, either directly or in comparison with other bodies. Pending the result of the FY 2019 federal budget and appropriations process, significant additional funds may be available for selections in program elements C.2, C.3 C.6, C.7, and C.14 through the Lunar Discovery and Exploration Program to fund relevant, lunar-focused science.
Since the Step-1 due date for C.2 Emerging Worlds is rapidly approaching and the added lunar emphasis may result in new proposals, the Step-1 due date for C.2 Emerging Worlds has been delayed to April 12, 2018. The Step-2 due date for C.2 remains unchanged at June 1, 2018.
On or about March 13, 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:
Questions concerning the emphasis on lunar-focused science may be directed to Sarah Noble at

Questions concerning any of the other ROSES program elements referenced in this notice should be directed to the point of contact, given in the summary table of key information at the end of each program element.
