Funding for the research performed by individual members of the RCN comes from awards received independently of the network. These awards will be granted through Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) solicitations, which currently include programs such as Exobiology and Habitable Worlds, but that will be expanded to different programs as new RCNs come online. Funding for the administration of the RCNs is provided by the Planetary Science Division.
