Proposed budget cuts would imperil academic research - Mario J. Crucini, the Tennessean

The United States is currently unrivaled in providing high-quality graduate education and research funding for the nation's laboratories, large and small. But with federal science funding targeted for big cuts, our future leadership may be at risk. U.S. academic research funding is a complex mix of tuition dollars, private university endowments and state and federal funding, including research funding through the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense and the Department of Education, among others. Funding for economics and social sciences comes disproportionately from the National Science Foundation (NSF), specifically the NSF Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic (SBE) Sciences.
