Federal Science and Engineering Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: FY 2007. Detailed Statistical Tables. NSF 09-315
National Science Foundation
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 National Science Foundation annually collects statistical data from the 19 federal agencies that account for virtually all support for science and engineering (S&E) research and development at educational institutions. The data presented in these tables cover all categories of direct federal science and engineering (S&E) support to institutions of higher education in the United States for S&E activities. The 19 agencies listed in these tables provide virtually all federal funding for S&E research and development (R&D) at U.S. universities and colleges. Data are also reported on these agencies' obligations to nonprofit institutions. (Contains 36 tables.)
