JWST Programs

The science program for JWST falls into three parts: observations undertaken by instrument team leads and members of the Science Working Group who are Guaranteed Time Observers; observations in support of the Early Release Science programs selected by the STScI Director; and observations proposed by the community and selected by peer review as the General Observer program. More details about each of those programs are given below.

New calls for General Observer proposals are anticipated once per year during JWST science operations.
