Funding Levels of Major Fellowship and Traineeship Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Programs in the Federal Government - FY2010
The nation’s unique system of combining graduate education with cutting-edge research is a core strength of the American innovation system and continued U.S. economic competitiveness.
Investing in the ability of students to attend college, regardless of economic status, is one of the most important things government can do to boost our economy in the short term and make our economy and our society stronger in the long term.
Dear Mr. Weiss: The Association of American Universities (AAU), the Council on Governmental Relations (COGR), and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) appreciate this opportunity to offer our collective comments on the Proposed Principles for Federal Support for Graduate and Postdoctoral Education and Training in Science and Engineering developed by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) (published in the Federal Register, November 16, 2005 (vol. 70, no. 220, pp. 69563-69565)).
Graduate Education Requires Increased Federal Investment The federal government provides support to graduate students in the form of fellowships, traineeships, and research assistantships. Funding for graduate programs in the major science- and education-related agencies should be increased to help meet the nation’s need for highly-skilled Americans who will become the next generation of scientists, scholars, and leaders in government, business, and industry.
Dear Senator Akaka: On behalf of the Association of American Universities (AAU), an organization of 62 leading public and private research universities, I write to thank you for your leadership on S. 589, the Homeland Security Federal Workforce Act.
