Intramural funding Ann R. Stevens 19 Jul 1994 17:02 EST

I am seeking information on what other schools provide in the way of
intramural funding of research of their faculty.  In view of the
drastic reductions in the research budgets of fedeal agencies, we are
trying to develop a proposal to put forth to our administration for
creating a fund to assist faculty who may have interrupted funding.

On another note, are you aware of the drastic cut proposed for the
DOD basic research budget.  $900 million from the $l.8 billion for
university basic research.  This is discussed in July l issue of
Science (page 22).  The bill with the proposed cut has passed the
House and is scheduled for mark up in the Senate Appropriations
Subcommittee on Defense on JULY 26, 1994

If you wish to comment prior to that date, send comments to

The Honorable Senator Daniel Inouye
Chair, Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense
