ROSES Program element C.11 Discovery Data Analysis Program (DDAP) solicits research based on select missions of NASA’s Discovery Program, and ESA’s Rosetta and BepiColombo missions. DDAP’s objectives are to enhance the scientific return of these missions by supporting new analyses, approaches and interpretations of data and samples. 


ROSES-2021 Amendment 44 delays the proposal due date for DDAP. Proposals are now due December 9, 2021.


This year, neither NSPIRES cover page budgets nor detailed budgets are requested at the time of proposal submission for DDAP; proposers must merely identify the project duration and cost category: small (<$75K/year), medium (<$175K/year), or large (<$300K per year). The budget cost caps of submitted proposals need not match those chosen at the time NOIs were submitted. However, for those with proposals deemed selectable, who are invited to submit detailed budgets, those budgets may not exceed the budget cost cap category that was chosen when the proposal was submitted.


DDAP proposals will be evaluated using Dual-Anonymous Peer Review and must be prepared following the guidelines provided.


On or about November 16, 2021, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2021” (NNH21ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on SARA’s ROSES blog at:
