Obama plans to triple the number of NSF Graduate Fellowships. The tripling will either start this year or next.

Money quote:
“Triple the Number of Graduate fellowships in Science to help Spur the Next Generation of Home-Grown Scientific Innovation. The industries of tomorrow will begin with ideas dreamed up in the classrooms and laboratories of today. Without investments in human capital today, we will not be able to reap the benefits of scientific innovation. That is why the Administration provided in the Recovery Act funds to be used as a down-payment toward the goal of tripling the number of graduate fellows in science.”
