Government Grants Within The United States Science and Technology Sector

by:

The United States of America prides itself as one of the most technologically-advanced countries in the world. Boosting some of this generation's biggest state-of-the-art research laboratories, the United States government is constantly looking for ways to support and improve the nation's science and technology sector.

Aside from serving as a major financial and economical forefront, science and technology also serves as one of the most essential facets of human discovery. It poses great promise and potential in enriching the lives of people, not only the Americans, but also human beings all over the world.
