AAA signs AAAS letter to protect NSF

The American Anthropological Association has signed a letter urging the House Appropriations Committee not to cut funds to the Nation Science foundations.  This letter, written by the American Association of the Advancement of Science, was signed by 149 U.S. science, engineering, and higher education organizations.

The letter states, “the undersigned organizations stand in strong opposition to legislative attempts to undermine the peer review process by seeking to defund research grants that have already been awarded after extensive evaluation by independent scientific review panels …  Furthermore, we strongly oppose attempts to eliminate or substantially reduce funding for specific areas of science such as the NSF Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE).” The letter also outlines the contributions that multi-disciplinary approaches have had and will continue to have in science and out nation more broadly.
