Since its establishment in 1950, NSF has supported student education -- from the early introduction to mathematics and science, through the college and postgraduate experiences. NSF also trains elementary, secondary and college teachers, and develops opportunities for future research scientists. NSF-supported scientists, engineers and educators provide the ideas and knowledge base for U.S. leadership in science and engineering.
