NSF's role in achieving performance goals in science and engineering leads to investments in integrative research and human capital activities to enhance the potential for important discoveries or new knowledge with expected future benefits to our society. Because of the close connections between the investments in performing research and building a research base of skilled scientists and engineers through academic and training opportunities, expenses incurred by NSF are presented as overall stewardship investments for NSF for performance measurement. The outputs and outcomes of NSF investments in the research and academic community resulted in a number of grants awarded and scientists and students supported.
