As seen in the interactive map below, regional clusters of S&E intensity can be seen along the east coast and New England, the Great Lakes, parts of the southeast, Texas, California, and the Pacific Northwest. Exploring the map reveals that the cities with the greatest levels of total federal S&E funding at IHEs in 2019 were Baltimore, Maryland ($2.14 billion); New York, New York ($1.71 billion); Atlanta, Georgia ($1.14 billion); Los Angeles, California ($1.01 billion); and La Jolla, California ($0.94 billion). Using the interactive map to zoom in on these cities shows the individual institutions that contributed to the local totals.
The enormous amount of federal S&E support received by IHEs in the Baltimore area during 2019 was almost exclusively driven by Johns Hopkins University which alone received more than $1.89 billion in federal S&E support, and was followed by the University of Maryland at Baltimore with $200 million. Alternatively, the federal S&E funding received by IHEs in New York City was much more evenly distributed across a greater number of institutions, with Columbia University topping the list with approximately $687 million in 2019, followed by New York University ($447 million) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai ($405 million).
