by:

The National Science Foundation(NSF) is an independent US Government federal agency created by the Congress in the year 1950 with the working objective of promoting the progress of science; advancing the national health, prosperity, and welfare; and finally securing the national defense.

With that, the NSF constantly supports fundamental research and education in various non-medical fields of science and engineering; such as mathematics, computer science, economics, and social sciences.
