Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Selected Nonprofit Institutions: Fiscal Year 1983. A Report to the President and Congress. Final Report. Surveys of Science Resources Series.
Bennof, Richard J.
Data on fiscal year 1983 federal support to United States institutions of higher education are presented in 17 charts and 56 statistical tables, 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 to federally-funded research and development centers (FFRDSs) administered by academic institutions; these obligations are presented separately, as are R&D obligations to independent nonprofit institutions and nonprofit-administered FFRDSs. Major categories of data provided in the statistical tables include 1963-1983 trends in federal obligations, the geographic distribution of federal aid, 100 institutions ranked in order of amount received, obligations by field, types of institutional control, institutional listings by state, and aid to historically black colleges. Data are included 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 provided.) (JN)
