NASA's Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (2024)
ROSES 2024 Solicitation
New in ROSES-2024: In an effort to increase the clarity and accessibility of information for programs within Appendix C, proposers are advised to read C.1, The Planetary Science Research Program Overview in its entirety to help ensure that they have the necessary information to be compliant with their proposal submission.
NEW 2024-06-26: These pages now support the Heliophysics Living With a Star Science (LWS) Program, Appendix B.5. Proposers are strongly advised to read Appendix B.1 The Heliophysics Research Program Overview, for Heliophysics-specific requirements.
Requirements for "Open Science and Data Management Plans" (formerly called Data Management Plans) significantly changed in 2023 and have been updated and clarified in 2024. All programs that require an OSDMP now require it as an separate 2-page section. See ROSES Open Science and Data Management Plan and C.1, Section 3.7 for more information.
Data archived in the Planetary Data System (PDS)are intended for long-term preservation and must be in PDS4 formats as well as undergo a separate peer review process. Proposers intending to archive data in the PDS must obtain a letter of support from the appropriate PDS Discipline Node confirming that the PDS is willing to accept their submission. This letter must be included in the proposal package and placed in a section for Statements of Commitment and Letters of Support, Feasibility, and Endorsement (see Table 1 of the ROSES-2024). Letters must be requested at least one week prior to the program element due date and proposers are strongly encouraged to initiate conversations with the relevant PDS Discipline Node several weeks ahead. (see Appendix C.1, Section 3.7.6).
The following table gives the key dates for each of the NRAs supported by these pages.

Spacecraft mission data and high-order mission data products to be used in proposed work must be available in the Planetary Data System (PDS), or an equivalent, publicly accessible archive, at least 30 days prior to the full proposal due date or proposal submission date for proposals submitted to No Due Date (NoDD) programs, unless otherwise specified in the program call. The calendar of record for data released in the PDS is the PDS Data Release Calendar
Additional submission instructions for NoDD programs are provided in Section 2.4 of C.1 of the Planetary Science Research Program Overview and
