Research Funding

Funding scientific research is an investment in the well-being of our country. Budget proposals that set out to slash the funding to scientific research and development can be extremely harmful. While it is understandable that a balanced budget is ideal, and budget cuts are sometimes necessary, we at the March for Science Atlanta feel that investments in research, innovation, and technology should not be viewed as easily dispensable. Public funding of research allows for unbiased scientific exploration, that is not influenced by special interests groups, as publicly-funded scientists work for the American people.
