S&T Program Science Priorities

Each spring, the S&T Program seeks research proposals from BOR employees through an annual call for proposals. The call for proposals requests detailed information about a project's research strategy, the benefits to Reclamation Regions, expected impacts and outcomes, and other information to support a relevancy and technical review that enables the S&T Program to select the best projects for funding each year.

Science priorities for the S&T Program are organized by research areas and categories. Within each research area, the S&T Program identifies the highest priority research needs that researchers may choose to submit proposals to address. The Annual Science Strategy Implementation Plan communicates these highest priority research needs.
