Congressional Earmarks for Colleges Increased by 49% for Fiscal 1997.
Cordes, Colleen
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n29 pA36-A37 Mar 28 1997
Congress has earmarked $440 million for projects involving specific universities for fiscal 1997, a 49% increase from the previous year but far from the $763 million earmarked in fiscal 1993. The funds are not subject to the competitive review typically used for distributing federal money. Critics say absence of review makes the awards a poor investment. (MSE)
