National Defense Education Act

In 1957 the Soviet Union launched Sputnik. The national panic generated by this event resulted in Congress passing a federal-aid-to-education bill, known as The National Defense Education Act of 1958. A major provision of the law involving a
$ 15 million grant was the provision of funds to identify talented students and encourage them to pursue higher education. In the 1957 – 1958 term alone, Congress proposed over 80 laws to establish programs that would seek out bright students and provide them with financial support for schooling.
