Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) is a program element in Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES). Through FINESST, the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) solicits proposals from accredited U.S. universities and other eligible organizations for graduate studentdesigned and performed research projects that contribute to SMD's science, technology, and exploration goals.

The Future Investigator (FI), i.e., the student, shall have the primary initiative to define the proposed FINESST research project and must be the primary author, with input or supervision from the proposal's Principal Investigator (PI), as appropriate. The proposal must present a well-defined research problem/activity and a justification of its scientific significance to NASA, as well as a detailed approach for its solution/conduct. Proposals should explain how the research is relevant to the SMD division that will review the proposal. All FINESST proposals must address their relevance to at least one participating SMD division (see Section 4.1.1).

An optional, preproposal teleconference is December 1, 2023, at 3:30 PM eastern time.
