This report describes in detail the distribution of funds obligated by 8 federal agencies to 2,100 universities and colleges, and 33 Federally Funded Research and Development Centers that were managed by academic institutions, between fiscal years 1963 and 1967. The funds were provided for academic science (research and development, R. and D. plant, other scientific activities) and nonscience activities, and represented more than 95% of all direct federal support to institutions of higher education. Total federal support increased from $1,413 million in 1963 to $3,311 million in 1967. In 1967, $2,323 million were provided for academic science and about $987 million for nonscience activities. Colleges and universities in the East North Central US received $602 million, or the largest portion of federal funds committed to a major geographic division, and 2-year institutions received more than $117 million. The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare accounted for $2,231 million, or two-thirds of total federal support to universities and colleges in 1967, with more than 95% of this amount obligated by the Public Health Service and the Office of Education. The report contains 20 illustrative tables in the text and 4 statistical tables in the Appendix, one of which shows the total federal obligations to all colleges and universities in 1967 by state, institution, and agency.
