Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions, Fiscal Year 1993. Detailed Statistical Tables.
National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Institutions of higher education, the major source of the nation's scientists and engineers, perform about one-half of the nation's basic research. Therefore, the level, distribution, and characteristics of federal academic support are of much interest to officials at federal, state, and local levels and in nongovernmental sectors. The data presented in the detailed statistical tables in this document represent all categories of direct federal science and engineering support to institutions of higher education in the United States. The 15 federal agencies included provided virtually all funding for science and engineering research and development at universities and colleges. In addition, data are reported on these agencies' obligations to nonprofit institutions. Data are categorized according to the following variables: trends in federal obligations; geographic distribution; 100 institutions ranked in order of amount received; institutional listings by state, type of institutional control, by highest degree granted and agency; historically black colleges and universities; systems of universities and colleges; federal obligations to independent nonprofit institutions; trends, science and engineering obligations to universities and colleges; summary; type of institutional control; and consortia of institutions.
