ISSR calls your attention to the details, of the President's FY 2019 Budget Request, newly analyzed by the Consortium of Social Science Associations (COSSA). COSSA reports that, revisions to the President's initial budget request restore much of its proposed 30% cut to the National Science Foundation. While the new proposal restores overall NSF funding the enacted FY2017 levels, it disproportionately reduces allocations to the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences Directorate. In the revised request, SBE would see a cut of 9.1 percent from FY2017 (11.2 percent to its research an education activities). See COSSA's detailed analysis of the President's FY2019 Budget Request for the National Science Foundation
