ROSES-13 Amendment 11: Appendix E.4, Opportunities in Education and Public Outreach for Earth and Space Science (EPOESS), is on hold pending review by NASA's Education Coordinating Council (ECC).
The EPOESS solicitation is for project activities utilizing SMD content supporting NASA education and public outreach (E/PO) objectives. It solicits proposals that address substantial and substantive educational or outreach needs or problems and offer solutions of significant impact. Project activities are expected to be relevant to NASA SMD Education and Outreach portfolio.
Given the consolidation of Federal STEM education programs in the President's FY 2014 budget (see http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/budget/fy2014/assets/nasa.pdf) NASA has decided to put the EPOESS program on hold pending review by the Education Coordinating Council in late May. The proposal due date for Appendix E.4, EPOESS, will be changed to TBD in the summary tables. The final disposition of the EPOESS program will be made public in early June by Amendment to ROSES-2013. If solicited, the proposal due date will be no less than 90 days from the date of Amendment.
On or about April 24, 2013, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2013" (NNH13ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2013/
Questions concerning Appendix E.4, Opportunities in Education and Public Outreach for Earth and Space Science, may be directed to Therese Kucera, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC 20546-0001. Telephone: (202) 358-3858; E-mail: email@example.com.
