Citizen Science Seed Funding Program

Categories: Funding, Professional, Faculty

Date: 12/11/2020

The Citizen Science Seed Funding Program (CSSFP) Element of ROSES aims to support scientists and other experts to develop citizen science projects relevant to NASA's Astrophysics, Heliophysics and Planetary Science Research Programs. Proposals relevant to Biological and Physical Sciences will also be considered on a case by case basis. The CSSFP aims to advance the use of citizen science by incubating citizen science projects as they are being conceived or during critical transitions, like the year when they are first launched or beta tested (i.e., when the first group of volunteers is invited to try the project) or when the project changes scientific direction. CSSFP awards require relatively short proposals to encourage new proposers to experiment with citizen science techniques; the Science/Technical/Management section has a limit of 6 pages.

ROSES-2020 Amendment 52 releases final text for E.9 Citizen Science Seed Funding Program. Notices of Intent to propose are requested by October 13, 2020 and 6-page Proposals are due December 11, 2020. A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document will be posted on the NSPIRES page for this program element under "Other Documents".

On or about September 11, 2020, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2020" (NNH20ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2020 and will appear on SARA's ROSES blog at: https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2020/.
