Step One: Look for Questionable Grants
Click here to open the National Science Foundation website. In the “Search Award For” field, try some keywords, such as: success, culture, media, games, social norm, lawyers, museum, leisure, stimulus, etc. to bring up grants. If you find a grant that you believe is a waste of your tax dollars, be sure to record the award number.
Step Two: Submit Award Numbers
Use this form to submit the award numbers of grants that you believe are wasteful; we will publish a report outlining the grants identified by the YouCut community.
Those are the instructions on Rep. Eric Cantor’s “YouCut” page for the National Science Foundation. I invite readers to enter their names and an award number, but then in the comments section provided, tell Rep. Cantor and Rep. Smith why this is a great award.
