ROSES-14 Amendment 34:Delay of Step-2 proposal due date for C.20, the Dawn at Ceres Guest Investigator Program

The goals of the Dawn at Ceres Guest Investigator Program are to: a) enhance the scientific return from the Dawn mission by broadening participation in the mission and b) augment the existing Dawn science team to include new members conducting investigations that broaden and/or complement the funded Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-Investigator (Co-I)-led investigations, thus maximizing the contribution of Dawn to the future exploration and scientific understanding of the Solar System. Because the intention is to enhance and broaden the scientific return, investigations submitted by Dawn PIs and Co-Is will not be considered. Individuals previously selected as Dawn at Vesta Participating Scientists may propose new investigations to this solicitation. 

Proposals to this program are being submitted by a two-step process in which the Notice of Intent was replaced by a mandatory Step-1 proposal that was submitted by an Authorized Organizational Representative. Only offerors who submitted a Step-1 proposal are now eligible to submit a Step-2 (full) proposal. Potential proposers are strongly encouraged to carefully read Section 2.3 of C.20 and the "Instructions for Submitting a Step-2 Proposal" under "Other Documents" on the NSPIRES web page for this program

To allow proposers adequate time to prepare their full Step-2 proposals after hearing the decision about their Step-1 proposals, the due date for Step-2 proposals for this program is now October 27, 2014.

On or about September 19, 2014, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES)-2014" (NNH14ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at: .
