The National Science Foundation (NSF) Survey of Research and Development (R&D) Expenditures at Universities and Colleges (academic R&D expenditures survey) is the primary source of information on separately budgeted R&D expenditures by academic institutions in the United States and outlying areas. Conducted annually since fiscal year 1972, the survey collects information on R&D expenditures by academic field as well as by source of funds. The results of the survey are primarily used to assess trends in R&D expenditures across the fields of science and engineering (S&E). This information is vital for decision making by federal, state, and academic planners regarding future R&D funding priorities.

Please note that System member NSF data includes THECB-reported date plus waived indirect cost and/or cost sharing omitted from the THECB data, less non-science activity included in the THECB data.

Texas A&M University at Galveston’s data is incorporated into Texas A&M University’s submission. In addition, Texas A&M University – Texarkana had no activity to report for fiscal year 2009.
