National Science Foundation Presents FY 2015 Budget Request


National Science Foundation (NSF) Acting Director Cora Marrett presents President Obama's fiscal year 2015 budget request to Congress for NSF at 11:00 a.m. EST on Monday, March 10, at NSF's headquarters at 4201 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, Va.

The budget request represents an increase of about 1 percent over the FY 2014 appropriation of $7.2 billion. Additional funding provided by the Opportunity, Growth and Security initiative will ensure strong support for the core activities that transform the frontiers of learning and discovery, allowing NSF to provide about 1,000 additional awards. OGSI will add to NSF's support for important national priorities in areas such as climate change, energy, advanced manufacturing, neuroscience and human capital development.

The budget request is divided into appropriation accounts in a summary document on the NSF website.

NSF's Full FY 2015 Budget Request to Congress will be available on March 10, 2014. For more information see:
