CNSF Urges Congress to Fully Fund NSF in FY23

The Coalition for National Science Funding, of which AAU is a member and co-chair, sent a letter to the leaders of the House and Senate appropriations committees urging them to complete FY23 appropriations before the end of the year and to fund NSF at the highest level possible, which is $11.9 billion as authorized in the recently passed bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act.

The letter notes that the increased funding level would help the NSF advance new programs and missions, such as the Directorate for Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships (TIP), the Regional Innovation Engines, and the STEM activities proposed in the CHIPS and Science Act. The current Senate bill proposes an increase for the NSF in FY23 to $10.338 billion, but as CNSF notes, that amount falls short of the authorized levels for NSF and would diminish the effectiveness and impact of new NSF programs.
