Federal Science/Engineering (S/E) Support to Universities and Colleges Rose by 6% in FY 1981; Non-S/E Support Down 25%. Science Resources Studies Highlights.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) annually collects and analyzes data on Federal obligations to individual universities and colleges for both science/engineering (S/E) and non-S/E activities. The survey data are submitted by the 15 Federal agencies with the largest programs in support of academic S/E activities and represent the only source of statistics on Federal obligations to individual academic and nonprofit institutions. Highlights of these data are provided and discussed, accomplished by two tables (Federal obligations to universities and colleges by type of activity: FY 1978-81 and Federal obligations to the 100 universities and colleges receiving the largest amounts: FY 1981) and one graph (Federal obligations to universities and colleges by type of activity). Federal support for S/E research and development (R&D), R&D plants, and non-R&D S/E activities are considered. (Author/JN)
