NSF Requests $60 Million for HPC in FY18 Budget

Posted on May 30, 2017

National Science Foundation Director France A. Córdova presented President Trump’s $6.65 billion NSF budget request for Fiscal Year 2018 to Congress on May 24.

A portion of that amount, $60 million, is earmarked for use by the NSF to “continue investments to extend the frontiers of high-performance computing. This investment will support the acquisition and deployment of a new HPC system that will serve as a national resource for providing predictable and sustained long-term capabilities for science and engineering to push the frontiers of knowledge and ultimately promote the health, prosperity, and welfare of the Nation.”

In fiscal year 2016, the NSF provided 27% of total federal support for academic basic research in all science and engineering fields in the United States. All told, it awarded grant funding to more than 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions.

The latest breakdowns of grant funding amounts by field of study have been included in the new (third) edition of Advanced Clustering Technologies’ white paper: Best Practices for Writing a Successful NSF MRI Grant Proposal. Download your free copy.
