At right, I have added a widget that allows you to support NSF funding of political science research. You can also go here. The Senate is back in session on Monday and will consider Senator Coburn’s amendment defunding the political science program at the NSF (more on that here). There is some back-channel communication from Capitol Hill that gives reason to be concerned that Coburn may succeed. The APSA and COSSA are, I believe, reaching out in more direct ways — via their own letter, lobbying, and efforts to mobilize groups like the AAAS and university presidents. Consider this petition just one small thing you can do.
