Bennof, Richard J.
Data are presented from the National Science Foundation's Survey of Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Selected Nonprofit Institutions, Fiscal Year 1980. The data represent all obligations to U.S. institutions of higher education. The 15 federal agencies represented account for an estimated 95 percent of total obligations to universities and colleges and over 99 percent of all funding for science and engineering research and development (R&D) at such institutions. Obligations shown for universities and colleges do not include funds obligated to federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) administered by academic institutions. Academic science and engineering (S/E) obligations to these organizations are presented separately, as are R&D obligations to independent nonprofit institutions and nonprofit-administered FFRDCs. Charts and narrative sections are presented on overall federal support of academic institutions, academic S/E support, federal R&D support, R&D plan support, nonscience obligations, university-administered FFRDCs, and independent nonprofit institutions and nonprofit-administered FFRDCs. Detailed statistical tables provide information on federal obligations, including the following: trends by agency and type of activity; geographic distribution of obligations; 100 institutions ranked in order of amount received, obligations by field of S/E, type of institutional control, and institutions listed by state. The statistical tables also cover the following types of activities: fellowships, traineeships, and training grants; R&D; general support for S/E; facilities and equipment for instruction in S/E; R&D plant; other S/E activities; and nonscience activities. Technical notes on the survey are appended. (SW)
