ROSES-2019 program element C.23 Interdisciplinary Consortia for Astrobiology Research (ICAR) solicits proposals that would take an interdisciplinary approach to addressing a compelling question in astrobiology. Team size and resources requested should be appropriate to the scale of the proposed research. There is no ideal size of an ICAR Team. Because this is an opportunity for larger teams and for five years of support, the scope of the research, and subsequently the resources needed, should exceed those typically considered in a Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) program element. 


This amendment delays the Step-2 proposal due date for this 2019 program element to May 15, 2020. This program uses a two-step proposal submission process; only proposers that had previously submitted a compliant Step-1 proposal may submit a Step-2 on May 15, 2020.


On or about March 30, 2020, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2019” (NNH19ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and the ROSES-2019 blog at:
