Sustainability Research and Development Priorities Award

Guy green by making sustainable purchasing at USC

Each year the federal government’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) outline the administration’s priorities for multi-agency federal funding for Research and Development (R&D) for the coming fiscal year. A priority area is focused on climate change impact. R&D priorities for FY23 are detailed in the “Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies,” issued Aug 27, 2021.

The USC R&D Priorities Award provides seed funding for interdisciplinary collaborative research activities involving groups of faculty from multiple schools who are preparing a proposal for an externally funded grant in areas of R&D priorities outlined by the OMB/OSTP. Applications can request up to $75,000; awards are for a period of one year.
