If appointed, Washington, along with five other nominees, will serve a six-year term until 10 May 2000. The Senate is expected to approve the nominations sometime during the fall. As a member of the 24-person board, Washington will help to participate in the board's functions: to assist the president and Congress in formulating national policies for science, engineering, and education, and to establish policies for the National Science Foundation (NSF). The National Science Board approves NSF's budget submittals to the president and Congress, approves new programs and major awards, and oversees the general functioning of NSF. One-third of the board is appointed every two years to ensure continuity.
