AAU Launches “Fund American Science” Campaign

The Association of American Universities (AAU) has launched a new campaign titled, “Fund American Science: Congress Must Act Now to Fund the CHIPS and Science Act” in response to the insufficient funding for the science portion of the CHIPS and Science Act (see previous COSSA coverage).

The AAU stresses that budget constraints and disagreements in Congress pose further threats to catching up to CHIPS and Science’s funding goals. This campaign calls on Congress to fully fund the amounts that CHIPS and Science authorized for the Department of Energy (DOE)’s Office of Science, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the National Science Foundation (NSF) for FY 2023 through FY 2027.

The program emphasized that funding for fundamental scientific research must be a top priority – even in times of fiscal constraint and addressing our federal deficit – if the United States wants to stay ahead in this race pivotal to our national security.
