Inthe National Science Foundation established the Statewide Systemic Initiative (SSI) program to “encourage improvements in science, mathematics and engineering education through comprehensive systemic changes in the education systems of the states” (EDC, ).

The SSI program represents a strategy aimed at. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is a United States government agency that supports fundamental research and education in all the non-medical fields of science and medical counterpart is the National Institutes of an annual budget of about US$ billion (fiscal year ), the NSF funds approximately 24% of all federally supported basic research conducted by.

example, following a logic similar to that of its Statewide Systemic Initiative (SSI), the NSF added to its portfolio large systemic grants to regional consortia serving rural areas, through the foundation's Rural Systemic Initiative, and to large urban districts, through the Urban Systemic Initiative (National Science Foundation, ).
