Excerpt
Excerpt: Highlights: // 1. During FY 2000 NSF took action on 29,407 competitively reviewed proposals, and provided funding to 9,762 of them. This resulted in an overall funding rate of 33 percent. These numbers have changed very little during the past five years. In FY 2000, Directorate funding rates ranged from 25 to 39 percent. // 2. In FY 2000, the number of awards to minority Principal Investigators (PIs) increased from 422 to 482, a 14 percent increase over FY 1999. Still, this is only about five percent of the total number of NSF awards. The funding rate for minority PIs is 32 percent, very close to NSF’s overall rate of 33 percent. // 3. During FY 2000, female PIs received 1,932 awards, a 16 percent increase over FY 1999. The funding rate was 35 percent. Since 1993 the number of proposals received from female PIs has increased by 18 percent and the number of awards has increased by 32 percent. // 4. There continues to be a wide disparity in the funding rates of new PIs and prior PIs (24 percent and 40 percent, respectively in FY 2000). In FY 2000 new PIs submitted 12,320 proposals, up slightly from FY 1999 but down by 15 percent from FY 1993-94 levels.
