How the States Rank in Pork for Higher Education, 1999
The Chronicle of Higher Education,July 23, 1999

Note: Each year Congress directs federal agencies to support certain projects at specific universities. The Chronicle ranked universities according to the total dollar value of earmarks that Congress did not require these colleges to share with any partners. Many colleges also received earmarks that they were required to share with other colleges, businesses, or government agencies. However, the agencies did not always report what portion of these earmarks was designated for each partner. Thus, the total value of shared earmar ks is presented separately.
