CNSF Urges Appropriators to Fund NSF at $8 Billion for FY18

The Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF), of which AAU is a member, sent a letter to House and Senate appropriators urging Congress to provide $8 billion to the National Science Foundation (NSF) in FY18. 

"A request of $8 Billion for NSF in FY2018 reflects 4% real growth from the FY2016 enacted," the letter said. "This requested increase of 4% real growth is consistent with the first recommendation in the clarion call-to-action, Innovation: An American Imperative, which more than 500 organizations from all 50 states representing industry, academia, and scientific and engineering societies have endorsed."
