 We are pleased to announce the 2017 (FY18) call for proposals!

The John Wesley Powell Center for Earth System Science Analysis and Synthesis fosters innovative thinking in Earth system science through collaborative synthesis activities. This mission is driven by the growing recognition that synthesis is critical to solving complex problems facing Society.

To date, the Center has successfully hosted 41 working groups that have produced more than 100 publications, many in top-ranked journals. We invite interdisciplinary Working Groups comprised of USGS researchers and their national and international colleagues in academia and government to submit proposals.

Working Groups collaborate to promote understanding through analysis of existing data and information. Groups that submit successful proposals will receive computing and data management support, funding for a Fellow, opportunities for meetings in Fort Collins, Colorado, and between-meeting collaborative tools.

Proposals are invited for projects that will begin on or after October 1, 2017.  Some proposals may be jointly funded by USGS and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Proposal Deadline: January 31, 2017

Instructions for proposal preparation and submission.

You are also invited to participate in a special webinar on Wednesday, November 9 at 2:00 pm ET to learn more about the Powell Center and how to submit a strong proposal.  The webinar by Dr. Jill Baron, co-director of the Powell Center, will provide valuable insights which will increase your understanding of the proposal process.
