This type of support is a primary driver of the U.S. economy, enhances the nation's security, advances knowledge to sustain global leadership. With an annual budget of $8.3 billion (FY 2020), we are the funding source for approximately 24 percent of all federally supported basic research conducted by America's colleges and universities.
