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. 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.
CSSFP awards have a duration of up to one year only.
