Analysis Variable:   Federal Obligations for General Support of S&E
This variable includes programs that support nonspecific or generalized purposes related to scientific research and education. Such projects are generally oriented toward academic departments, institutes, or institutions as a whole, and embody varying types of support. These types of support range from support provided without any specification or purpose other than that the funds be used for scientific projects, to projects in which funds are provided for activities within a specified field of science and engineering without a specific purpose. The National Institute of Health's (NIH) Biomedical Science Support Grants and General Research Support Grants are examples of these types of programs.
