  • How much federal research and development funding do colleges in your state receive?
  • A Campus Reform report, compiled from publicly available government data, has the answer.
  • Leading up to President Donald Trump signing an executive order on March 21st that is intended to withhold federal research dollars from colleges and universities that do not protect free speech, Campus Reform compiled a report, based on publicly available data from the National Science Foundation, a government agency that produces an annual spending report on how much taxpayer money flows into higher education research.

    The data presented in the report show that hundreds of colleges and universities, both private and public, in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, received just over $40 billion in 2017 for federal research and development (R&D) purposes.

    Will you help expose liberal bias on America’s campuses?

    Campus Reform exposes the liberal bias and abuse against conservatives on America’s colleges and universities.

    As a Campus Reform reader, you know about the abuse taking place at our nation’s higher education institutions, and you know how important it is to bring these stories to light.

    College campuses are no longer bastions of higher learning. Leftist professors indoctrinate students with their agendas. They even silence conservative students with their attempts to suppress free speech.

    Campus Reform depends on the financial support of concerned Americans like you to report on leftist indoctrination on college campuses and uncover the blatant misconduct of university administrators, faculty, and students.
