Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Selected Nonprofit Institutions, Fiscal Year 1982. Final Report to the President and Congress.
Bennof, Richard J.
Data on fiscal year 1982 federal support to U.S. institutions of higher education are presented, along with a condensed narrative analysis. The 15 federal agencies represented account for an estimated 95 percent of total obligations to colleges and universities and virtually all support for science and engineering (S/E) research and development (R&D) at these institutions. Obligations shown for colleges and universities do not include funds obligated to federally-funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) administered by academic institutions; these obligations are presented separately, as are R&D obligations to independent nonprofit institutions and nonprofit-administered FFRDCs. The statistical tables cover: 1963-1982 trends in federal obligations, the geographic distribution of federal aid, 100 institutions ranked in order of amount received, aid recipients by institutional type, institutional listings by state, aid to historically black colleges, and aid to college and university systems. Data are also presented on obligations to academic institutions distributed according to highest-degree-granted categories of doctorate, master's, bachelor's, and no S/E degrees. Technical notes on the survey are included. (SW)
