Excerpt
OVERVIEW: The basic research investments of the National Science Foundation (NSF) form the backbone of many science and engineering disciplines and capabilities in the United States. Basic research has been responsible for many breakthroughs and has been strongly linked to economic growth. The agency provides merit-based awards to individual researchers and groups at over 2,000 U.S. colleges, universities, and other institutions. Although NSF represents about four percent of the total Federal budget for research and development (R&D), it accounts for approximately 45 percent of non-life-science basic research at U.S. academic institutions. NSF?s broad support for basic research, particularly at U.S. academic institutions, provides crucial underwriting for discovery in many fields and supports the development of the next generation of scientists and engineers. NSF awards research funding based on the merits of the proposed activities, including their potential impact on society. NSF ensures quality in its programs by using competitive merit review of grant proposals, coupled with periodic external review of its research and education programs that approve those grants. These practices are consistent with the Research and Development Investment Criteria, a component of the President?s Management Agenda.
