Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Selected Nonprofit Institutions. Fiscal Year 1981. A Report to the President and Congress. Final Report.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
The National Science Foundation annually collects statistical data from the 15 federal agencies that accounted for an estimated 95 percent of total obligations (for both science/engineering (S/E) and non-S/E activities) to academic institutions and for over 98 percent of all support for S/E research and development at these institutions. This report, the sixteenth in a series presenting data on federal obligations to universities and colleges, divided into three parts, each part presenting charts summarizing data for fiscal year 1981 in graphical format with a short discussion. Areas addressed include: (1) federal support of academic institutions; (2) federal obligations to university-administered federally funded research and development centers (FFRDC); and (3) independent nonprofit institutions and nonprofit-administered FFRDC's. Fifty-four detailed statistical tables (comprising the major portion of the report) are found in an appendix. Among the data provided in these tables are: obligations to academic institutitons distributed according to highest, degree-granting categories of doctorate, master's, bachelor's, and no S/E degrees; obligations distributed according to National Center for Education Statistics categories (doctorate-granting, comprehensive, general baccalaureate, professional/specialized, and 2 year); and (for the first time) obligations to the 105 historically black colleges by type of activity.
