Federal Science and Engineering Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: Fiscal Year 2002

General Notes


The data presented in these tables cover all categories of direct Federal science and engineering (S&E) support to institutions of higher education in the United States for science and engineering (S&E) activities. The 18 agencies listed in these tables provide virtually all of the Federal funding for S&E research and development (R&D) at U.S. universities and colleges. Data are also reported on these agencies' obligations to nonprofit institutions.

The fiscal year (FY) 2002 data in this report were submitted by 18 Federal agencies, covering the period October 1, 2001, through September 30, 2002. Because of space constraints, data for 9 agencies are often combined and reported in an "other" category in tables that show funding by agency. The 9 agencies are the Agency for International Development; the Appalachian Regional Commission; the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, and Transportation; the Nuclear Regulatory Commission; the Office of Justice Programs; and the Social Security Administration.

The following agencies were included in the "other" category, because they reported obligations in the variables represented by the table:

Because of rounding, data in the text or tables may not add to the totals or subtotals shown. Reported obligations were rounded to the nearest thousand dollars by the submitting agency.
