NSF is a leading U.S. government funder of basic research in science and engineering at U.S. colleges and universities. NSF supports research in all non-medical fields of S&E as well as training of the U.S. science and engineering workforce. Grants are made to U.S. institutions and support university faculty, postdocs and students to conduct research, including international collaboration when it enhances U.S. research and education. In principle, NSF supports the U.S. side of an international partnership: overseas partners seek funding from their national funding agencies or other sources. Visit Website
