Inside Higher Ed: Crowdfunding Academic Research


NSF issues guidance on how it will carry out Congressional orders to restrict funding of the discipline, and the agency leaves the door open to new grants.

In the face of increased competition and diminishing federal funding, some academic researchers are turning to crowdfunding platforms to raise money.  

New Russian law requiring NGOs to register as "foreign agents" if they receive funding from foreign sources and are engaged in "political activity" threatens closure of an independent polling agency and raises concerns about climate for scholarly collaborations.
