Title Due Date Maximum Award Amount Description
eSports and Game Development Skills Training and Capacity Building $45,000.00

The U.S. Embassy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia requests proposals for projects aimed at increasing the knowledge, skills, abilities, and networks of Saudi youth in game development and STEAM fields. This program should engage with Emerging Voices (EVs), particularly in the age group of 18-30 years, on key U.S. government priorities such as STEM education, gender equality, and English language learning, and to promote studying gaming related college majors in the United States and help develop an eSports culture in Saudi Arabia. Through this proposed initiative, the U.S. Mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia hopes to build capacity in STEAM and creative economy sectors among youth audiences, primarily through training from U.S. experts. The Mission also hopes to link Saudi game developers with counterparts in production and distribution to help build the infrastructure necessary to create and operate an independent Saudi gaming industry that leads the region and gains global attention. eSports and coding clubs would provide Saudi youth an opportunity to game for good and assume club leadership responsibilities as content developers, creative directors, tournament organizers, shout casters, marketing directors, stream producers, game designers and many more, offering opportunities to practice their crafts, expand their creative skills and improve their communication and leadership abilities. This immersive hands-on engagement would act as the precursor to help Saudi youth identify their future aspirations and interests that would connect them with gamers in the United States and expose them to the eSports culture of the U.S. Public Affairs invites local and American nonprofit organizations and educational institutions to submit proposals that provide skills training, capacity building, networking with U.S. businesses and education institutions, community building, and other educational and economic cooperation that supports Saudi youth working in game development, eSports, STEAM fields, and other creative economy fields.

The close date above is the date for the Step-1 proposal submission. Proposers wishing to submit a Step-1 proposal via must contact Dr. Guillaume Vignaux ( Senior Support Scientist, NASA Research and Education Support Services, to ensure that the system is available for proposal submission. See the solicitation for the Step-2 due date. Step-2 proposals cannot be submitted if a Step-1 proposal was not submitted and Step-2 proposals can only be submitted via NSPIRES. Proposers must retrieve the instructions document (zip file) associated with the application package for this opportunity as there is at least one required form that must be attached to the submitted proposal package. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) released its annual omnibus Research Announcement (NRA), Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – 2022 (OMB Approval Number 2700-0092, CFDA Number 43.001) on February 14, 2022. In this case "omnibus" means that this NRA has many individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics. All together these cover the wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by SMD. Awards will be made as grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and inter- or intra-agency transfers, depending on the nature of the work proposed, the proposing organization, and/or program requirements. However, most extramural research awards deriving from ROSES will be grants, and many program elements of ROSES specifically exclude contracts, because contracts would not be appropriate for the nature of the work solicited. The typical period of performance for an award is three years, but some programs may allow up to five years and others specify shorter periods. In most cases, organizations of every type, Government and private, for profit and not-for-profit, domestic and foreign (with some caveats), may submit proposals without restriction on teaming arrangements. Tables listing the program elements and due dates, the full text of the ROSES-2022 solicitation, and the "Summary of Solicitation" as a stand-alone document, may all be found NSPIRES at This synopsis is associated with one of the individual program elements within ROSES, but this is a generic summary that is posted for all ROSES elements. For specific information on this particular program element download and read the PDF of the text of this program element by going to Tables 2 or 3 of this NRA at and, respectively, click the title of the program element of interest, a hypertext link will take you to a page for that particular program element. On that page, on the right side under "Announcement Documents" the link on the bottom will be to the PDF of the text of the call for proposals. For example, if one were interested in The Lunar Data Analysis Program (NNH22ZDA001N-LDAP) one would follow the link to the NSPIRES page for that program element and then to read the text of the call one would click on “C.8 Lunar Data Analysis (.PDF)” to download the text of the call. If one wanted to set it into the context of the goals, objectives and know the default rules for all elements within Appendix C, the planetary science division, one might download and read “C.1 Planetary Science Research Program Overview (.PDF)” from that same page. While the letters and numbers are different for each element within ROSES (A.12, B.7, etc.) the basic configuration is always the same, e.g., the letter indicates the Science Division (A is Earth Science, B is Heliophysics etc.) and whatever the letter, #1 is always the division overview. Frequently asked questions for ROSES are posted at Questions concerning general ROSES-2022 policies and procedures may be directed to Max Bernstein, Lead for Research, Science Mission Directorate, at, but technical questions concerning specific program elements should be directed to the point(s) of contact for that particular element, who may be found either at the end of the individual program element in the summary table of key information or on the web list of topics and points of contact at: Not all program elements are known at the time of the release of ROSES.

Countering Stigma and Prejudice Against the Transgender Community $50,000.00

In the medium term, a concrete objective will be to have the participating corporations make changes to current policies, demonstrate the activities they have executed to foster a more inclusive work environment, and develop active transgender employee recruitment plans.

In the immediate term, this exercise should lead to the setting up of Pride/Rainbow groups within corporations that actively create awareness about TG persons and their rights. The grantee will organize workshops for employees and leadership of corporations of a minimum of 15 different corporations in Hyderabad and Chennai to sensitize them towards the rights of the LGBTQI+ community broadly, and the transgender (TG) community specifically. These workshops will aim to help corporations and businesses to better understand the needs of the TG community and encourage them to adopt policies and carry out activities that foster a work environment that is safe, nurturing, accepting, and inclusive for members of the TG community. A longer-term outcome is that these corporations and businesses increase their hiring of members of the TG community and help their employees and the general public be more accepting.
