Agency Budgets

AAU closely monitors and advocates for the budgets of federal agencies that are the primary funders of student financial aid and higher education programs, faculty scholarship, and basic scientific research that are vital to innovation and our nation’s economic competitiveness and national security.

Included in this section is budget information about education and research programs at:

AFRI     DOD     DOE     ED     NASA     NEH     NIH     NSF

Consequently, AAU is pleased to see the authors of the Spectrum and National Security Act of 2024 (S.4207) have recognized the need to enhance our national innovation capacity by directing some revenues to fund research and infrastructure at NSF and NIST to achieve funding levels previously authorized by Congress.
While AAU would have liked to have seen an increase in NIH funding in FY24, we are pleased that Congress will soon be able to avoid a year-long continuing resolution which will ensure that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) can continue to fund new promising research projects.
