FY 2015 Budget Request

NSF FY 2015 Budget Request to Congress cover

Table of Contents

The FY 2015 Budget Request for the National Science Foundation (NSF) continues the tradition of a thoughtful and strategic balance between core research activities both within and across disciplinary boundaries and activities that address emerging areas and clearly identified national priorities. Bolstering and advancing the types of core investments that have been central to the agency’s past success reflects a wise stewardship of NSF’s federal funding and ensures a strong return on taxpayer investment. In addition, specific investments identified for FY 2015 align NSF’s portfolio with overarching challenges and opportunities facing the Nation. This balanced approach ensures that NSF will continue to foster research that catalyzes the development of scientific discovery, promotes creation of new knowledge, and builds human capacity for the workforce of tomorrow.
