Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
H.R. 996 is a bill to strengthen the science and technology base of the United States by providing opportunities for talented young people to pursue postsecondary education in science, mathematics, and engineering. The bill establishes a Congressional Scholarship Program at the National Science Foundation to provide undergraduate 2-year and 4-year scholarships. Ultimately, the program seeks to increase participation by talented young people, including women, minorities, and individuals with disabilities, in careers in science and engineering and in teaching careers in science and mathematics in elementary and secondary schools. This report recommends an amended version of H.R. 996. The report reprints the proposed legislation; describes the nature of the scholarship program and funding authorization; provides a sectional analysis of the bill and a cost estimate; notes the bill's legislative history; and explains the views and the amendments of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
