Financial Support to SCOR

SCOR receives funds from a large number of sources, including national membership contributions, and grants and contracts from U.S. federal agencies, private foundations, and international organizations. The support of all of these agencies and organizations is gratefully acknowledged. A complete list of financial sponsors of SCOR can be found in annual SCOR Proceedings. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in SCOR-sponsored documents are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of SCOR’s sponsors. SCOR’s accounts are audited annually, in accordance with U.S. government regulations. Annual audit reports are available upon request and SCOR financial information is available through GuideStar.

SCOR receives support from U.S. agencies, including the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) through grants. These agencies require that recipients of grant funding follow a variety of non-discrimination laws that are in place in the United States:

  1. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits recipients of federal financial assistance from discriminating on the basis of race, color, or national origin.
  2. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in education programs or activities.
  3. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability.
  4. The Age Discrimination Act of 1975, which prohibits the Applicant from discriminating on the basis of age.

The SCOR coordinator for all of these four non-discrimination laws in place in the United States is the SCOR Executive Director, who can be reached at or +1-302-831-7011.

SCOR does not discriminate in the operation of its programs and activities and all programs receiving pass-through funding from U.S. federal agencies must not discriminate. Complaints alleging illegal discrimination in SCOR programs will be promptly and equitably resolved.
