Federal Support to Universities and Colleges: Fiscal Year 1989. Selected Data.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
This summary presents data derived from the Survey of Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: Fiscal Year 1989. The 15 federal agencies surveyed for the report provide virtually all funding for science and engineering (S/E) research and development (R&D) at universities and colleges, and the data presented in the tables (which make up over 50% of the report) represent all categories of direct federal obligations to institutions of higher education in the United States. Amounts for tuition support programs such as Pell grants and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are included in the figures. Totals exclude loans to individuals, however, such as those related to federally guaranteed student loan programs sponsored by the Department of Education and federal employee training and development activities. Tables present data on federal obligations to universities and colleges: (1) by type of activity--fiscal years 1963-89; (2) by field of research and development--fiscal years 1982-89; (3) by geographic division and state--fiscal years 1982-89; (4) for the 100 schools receiving the largest amounts by agency--fiscal year 1989; (5) by agency and type of activity--fiscal year 1989; and (6) for the 100 universities and colleges receiving the largest amounts by type of activity--fiscal year 1989.
