  1. Washington THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION (NSF)is the only federal agency whose mission includes support for all fields of fundamental science and engineering. BY THE NUMBERS WASHINGTON IN FY 2013 16th: National ranking in NSF funds $140 Million: NSF funds awarded 38: NSF-funded institutions459: NSF grants awarded “By building on our foundation as an interdisciplinary research institution, we strive to address today’s most critical issues and make a positive difference in people’s lives. It’s an ongoing journey — and it’s one that we’re all on together.” − Michael K. Young, President of the University of Washington EXAMPLES OF NSF-FUNDED RESEARCH IN WASHINGTON A Washington State University study is examining the effectiveness of university partnership accommodation policies on recruitment and retention of women in Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering (STEM) fields of employment. Research at the University of Washington is studying the impacts of hypoxia (low dissolved oxygen on food webs within pelagic marine ecosystems. Research at Central Washington University is dedicated towards implementation of Geophysical Earth Observatory for Ice-Covered Environments (GEOICE), a new observatory for improved data collection of seismic changes and sea level changes in ice-covered regions. INVESTMENT IN NSF = INVESTMENT IN WASHINGTON INNOVATION Since 1974, the University of Washington has annually received more federal research funding than any other U.S. public university.1 One-third of U of Washington-supported jobs are supported by $1.15 billion in university-sponsored research.1 NSF-funded research contributed to the generation of 4,004 patent awards in Washington between 2000 and 2009.2 • Over 250 companies have been started by University of Washington students and faculty or with university technology.1 • Washington universities awarded 578 PhDs in science and engineering fields in 2011.3 • Washington State University is ranked 73rd among U.S. academic institutions for science and engineering expenditures.3 1The Economic and Societal Impact of the University of Washington 2 R&D Dashboard 3Science and Engineering Indicators: 2014, NSF Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF)  1527 Eighteenth Street, NW  Washington, DC 20036  www.cnsfweb.org

  2. Washington Since 1952, NSF has supported 45,000 graduate students through research fellowships. Washington received $21 million in NSF educational funding in FY 2013. THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION (NSF) not only funds cutting-edge research at institutions across the country; NSF’s education initiatives ensure the U.S. will remain a global leader in innovation for generations to come. EXAMPLES OF NSF-FUNDED EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN WASHINGTON Seattle Pacific University is working on a five-year project to improve the teaching of physics and physical science educators in grades 5-12 through the development of a science teacher education model that assesses teacher instruction methods. South Pungent Sound Community College is working on a project to advance community college-level computerized manufacturing technology education. The project will help address the educational and workforce needs of high school students, community college students, students returning to school, dislocated workers, and veterans.  A University of Washington study entitled “Science in Action: Understanding and Sustaining Student Engagement in Environmental Science in Urban, Poverty-Impacted Schools” is working to identify how domain knowledge, literacy, and the social context of classrooms and schools affect student learning in science courses in poverty-impacted high schools.  Washington State University and Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville are working to develop a new educational K-12 infrastructure aimed at increasing the participation of blind individuals in secondary schools, and ultimately in undergraduate computing programs and the software engineering profession. “STEM education is, without question, increasingly important to maintaining our competitive advantage in the industries of the future. There are steps we can take at all levels of our education system to improve prospects for our children.” − Jay Inslee, Governor of Washington Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF)  1527 Eighteenth Street, NW  Washington, DC 20036  www.cnsfweb.org
