Fund Increase

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences receives about 85 per cent of the NSF funds given to Harvard. The Medical School gets about 10 per cent, with the remainder divided among the Business School, the Ed School, and the School of Public Health.

Dean Ford said this week that the Committee on Research Policy of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences will meet later this month to decide whether to divide the Faculty's additional money among the various departments with NSF funds projects, or to keep the money in one "contingent fund" to be used for aid to projects particularly hand-pressed by spending cuts.

'Continuing Consideration'
