Funding for three Smithsonian research centers would be transferred next year to the National Science Foundation (NSF) under a White House budget strategy aimed at rewarding agencies for their management prowess. Science has learned that the move is part of a proposed shift of roughly $120 million from several agencies to NSF. Parts of the $30 million water resources program at the U.S. Geological Survey and the $60 million university-based Sea Grant program run by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration would also be moved.
