The National Science Foundation has awarded five-year, $15 million grants to improve student achievement in science and mathematics in Milwaukee, St. Louis, and San Diego.

The federal grants are the third wave in the NSF's Urban Systemic Initiative, bringing the number of participating cities to 19. The initiative, launched in 1994, was designed to target the 25 cities with the highest proportion of children living in poverty. School districts must meet specific student-performance goals to receive funding.

Budget constraints might prevent the agency from awarding funds to all the sites.
