Information about submissions, selections, and selection rates for NASA’s FINESST program.

Submissions, Selections, and Selection Rates

FINESST generally selects about 130-150 total proposals, or about 15% of total submissions. The exact selection rate varies from year to year and by division, but astrophysics typically has the lowest selection rate and heliophysics the highest. The overall selection rate has been fairly stable in recent years. The data shown below are taken from the selection documents published to NSPIRES and may not match the values published on the SARA website where FINESST (and other grant) selection rates can be found.
