What Is the Federal Role in Supporting Academic Research and Graduate Research Assistants? Division of Science Resources Studies Issue Brief.
Rapoport, Alan I.
This issue brief presents data illustrating the diversity across federal agency support in the science and engineering fields as emphasized in their funding of both academic research and science and engineering graduate students. Funding data show that changes in the balance of academic research funding across agencies are likely to affect both the distribution of research funding among science and engineering fields and the availability of federal research assistantships and other types of support to graduate students.
