    1. New Mexico 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 New Mexico in FY 2012 $42 Million: NSF funds awarded31st: National ranking in NSF funds16: NSF-funded institutions 139: NSF grants awarded4: NSF research centers/facilities “High quality scientific research is critical to our ability to fulfill our mission as New Mexico's flagship university, from educating students who will compete in a high-tech global economy to fueling economic development through innovation and the creation of knowledge.” -Dr. David J. Schmidly, President, University of New Mexico EXAMPLES OF NSF-FUNDED RESEARCH IN NEW MEXICO New Mexico’s NSF-funded Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) devised a method for accurately measuring water use with satellite technology. The method has been implemented in Doña Ana County, where water restrictions necessitate greater accountability in agricultural water use. Researchers at the Sevilleta Long Term Ecological Research Site played a central role in determining the cause of an outbreak of hantavirus in 2003. Their research answered key questions about the sudden outbreak of the virus and how it spread, helping to save lives. New Mexico’s Very Large Array is considered the most productive radio telescope ever built. Astronomers from around the world have used it to observe black holes and planet formation.

    2. New Mexico Since 1952, NSF has supported 45,000 graduate students through research fellowships. New Mexico received $8 million in NSF educational funding in FY 2012. 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 NEW MEXICO The NSF-funded Noyce Scholarship Project at Northern New Mexico College will train 31 new science, technology, engineering, and math teachers to teach in rural areas of the state. Project GUTS, funded by NSF’s Academies for Young Scientists, engaged middle school students and teachers in hands-on research, computer modeling, and interactive discussions. Students who completed the program improved their problem-solving skills. Participants in the NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology received mentoring from scientists while working on an interdisciplinary research project. NSF funding supports the Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship project at the University of New Mexico, which will produce a new generation of professionals who will integrate nanotechnology with biological systems. Courtesy: www.research.gov/seeinnovation “A strong education system is the key to America’s global competitiveness, our economic future, andthe quality of life for its citizens.” -Bill Richardson, former Governor of New Mexico “It’s time to take bold efforts to ensure our children receive a quality education that will prepare them to succeed in college and the workforce.” − Hanna Skandera, New Mexico Secretary of Education Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF)  1527 Eighteenth Street, NW  Washington, DC 20036  www.cnsfweb.org
