Office of Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research - (EPSCoR) - #47.081
As an investment strategy, Co-funding enables members of the research communities within EPSCoR jurisdictions not only to improve their ability to compete for National Science Foundation (NSF) program funds, but also to increase their active participation and visibility as members of the national scientific research and education enterprise. To assist those jurisdictions that has historically received lesser amounts of academic research and development funding. The NSF EPSCoR Office established the Co-funding Initiative in FY 1998 to accelerate the movement of more researchers and institutions from EPSCoR jurisdictions into the mainstream of NSF support, and thereby contribute to the NSF EPSCoR concept of a Trajectory for Sustainable Scientific Success.
FY 07 $102,110,000; FY 08 est $111,100,000; and FY 09 est not available.
