Stimulus Funding Information
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA, and commonly referred to as the “Economic Stimulus” package) provides $21.5 billion for scientific research and development. This extraordinary infusion of dollars will obviously have a significant impact throughout the research community.
Each federal agency has the authority to deploy funding at its own discretion. A primary goal of NIH and NSF is to fund highly rated proposals that were submitted recently but not funded due to budgetary limitations. Many excellent Princeton proposals in the pipeline should benefit from this welcome development.
