ScienceWorksForU.S.

ScienceWorksForU.S. is a joint project of The Science Coalition, the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities to inform policymakers and the public of the devastating impact that sequestration is having on federally funded scientific research.

Universities conduct the majority of basic scientific and medical research in the United States and, as such, are ground zero for the discovery and innovation that fuels the economy, as well as for the education of future scientists, engineers, doctors, teachers and entrepreneurs.

Innovation Deficit

Close the Innovation Deficit is an effort by the business, higher education, scientific, and high-tech manufacturing communities who are concerned about cuts and stagnating federal investments in research and higher education at a time when other nations are investing heavily in these areas. The Science Coalition supports the effort to Close the Innovation Deficit and believes sustained federal investments in research and higher education are necessary to develop the ideas, people, and innovations that power our economy, create jobs, improve health, and strengthen our national security.

SCIENCE 2034

What does science hold for the future? SCIENCE 2034 is an initiative by The Science Coalition to mark our 20th anniversary by looking forward 20 years and focusing on the possibilities of the future.

While we don’t know what the next “Big Thing” will be, we can make some educated predictions about how well-funded scientific research might change our lives and our world. At www.Science2034.org we ask scientists, policymakers and thought leaders to weigh in and tell us what they think science will enable 20 years from now and what that will mean to individuals, society and the world.

The Science Coalition Issues Request for Proposals

August 1, 2017

The Science Coalition (TSC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of more than 50 leading American public and private research universities. Our mission is to strengthen the federal government’s investment in basic scientific research as a means to stimulate the economy, spur innovation, and drive American global competitiveness. Our efforts are focused nearly exclusively on public affairs and communications and not on traditional lobbying, although we expect TSC-developed materials and campaigns to enhance our members’ individual lobbying efforts.


TSC seeks proposals from Washington, DC-based public affairs and/or consulting firms to assist in developing and implementing strategic public affairs initiatives and campaigns to support advocacy for federally funded, university-based scientific research with member institutions’ government relations professionals. Many TSC member institutions are also members of other scientific and higher education associations and coalitions. TSC is an independent entity serving all of its members equally and its members operate within the context of the broader scientific and higher education ecosystem.


Proposals must be submitted by 5:00 pm ET on September 1, 2017 for consideration.  Proposals are to be submitted electronically (only) to The Science Coalition at  TheScienceCoalition@gmail.com. Proposals are to be limited to 25 pages.


Primary contacts:


Glynda Becker (glynda.becker@wsu.edu), TSC President


Anna Quider (aquider@niu.edu), TSC Vice President
