NSF announces first major award under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

The National Science Foundation (NSF) made its first major award under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to construct the Alaska Region Research Vessel (ARRV). This investment will not only provide a technologically advanced tool for science but help preserve jobs and promote economic recovery. The three-year construction phase of the project will support 4,350 total jobs--750 directly at the shipyard and as many as 3,600 in the broader economy.
