Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: Fiscal Year 1990. A Report to the President and Congress. Surveys of Science Resources Series.
The data presented in this report represent all categories of direct Federal support to institutions of higher education in the United States. The data were provided by the 15 federal agencies that account for virtually all support for science and engineering (S&E) research and development (R&D) at universities, colleges, and nonprofit institutions. The data presented are collected annually through the National Science Foundation's Survey of Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions, which originated in 1965. The survey collects information on: (1) total program support in thousands of dollars (encompassing both S&E and non-S&E activities) to academic institutions; (2) total S&E support to federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) administered by academic institutions; and (3) R&D and R&D plant support to nonprofit institutions and associated FFRDCs. (Data on FFRDCs have not been published in this report.) The report begins with general notes on the survey and a section of technical notes explaining the scope of the survey and the organization of the report and giving definitions of the terms used. The detailed statistical tables that follow the technical notes constitute the bulk of the report and cover trends and total obligations, geographic distribution, institutions ranked in order of amount received, historically black colleges, institutional listings by state, and systems of universities and colleges.
