TAKE ACTION: Tell Senate to Reject Amendments that Cut Social Science Funding

Dear AERA Members,

I am writing you in anticipation of Senate consideration of the FY 2015 Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies appropriations bill next week. The scientific community expects that amendments will be introduced that target social and behavioral science research programs at NSF. Please urge your Senators to oppose any amendments that would negatively affect specific research programs at NSF either by cutting or placing conditions (e.g., changes to peer review) on funding. It is important to protect the integrity of all science.

To expedite sending a letter, please use the COSSA ?Take Action? portal below. Also, please email AERA at govrelations@aera.net if you send a letter on this important legislation. You may also tweet by using the hashtag #Stand4Science.

Thanks in advance.



Felice J. Levine, PhD
