Former NSF Directors and NSB Chairs Send Letters Urging CHIPS-level Funding for NSF

A group of former directors of the National Science Foundation and former chairs of the National Science Board sent letters to President Biden and Vice President Harris and to leaders of the House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees on Commerce, Justice, and Science urging them to fund the NSF in FY23 and FY24 at the levels authorized in the CHIPS and Science Act.

Both letters emphasized that the enhanced levels of funding are needed to keep the United States globally competitive and to fuel economic growth and prosperity. “Without a significant and sustained increased investment in our fundamental research enterprise, it is only a matter of time before our competitors overtake the United States in certain aspects of technological primacy,” the letters noted.
