SRCD Signs on to CNSF Letter on Fiscal Year 2021 Appropriations and the National Science Foundation
SRCD signed on to a Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF) letter thanking Congress for their continued support for scientific research and educational programs supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The letter, addressed to Committee on Appropriations leadership, encourages Congress to pass the FY21 Commerce-Justice-Science appropriations bill and increase funding for the National Science Foundation.
The letter notes, “The U.S. is leaving potentially transformative scientific research and efforts to enhance STEM education on the table, while other countries are making significant investments. One effective way to combat this concern is to ensure that NSF receives the highest funding level to support as many of its strong proposals as possible.”
The Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF) is an alliance of more than 130 professional organizations, scientific societies, universities, and businesses united in their advocacy for the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Society for Research in Child Development is a CNSF member.
