E for me

Who is seeking to spur science education? Its the National Science Foundation.

D's 'is to spend' is awkward

Also, please underline your questions, thanks!

Well the first question came in my mind is 'who is seeking to spur science education?'
Its 'National Science Foundation'
So ''National Science Foundation' should modify the clause 'Seeking to spur science education' as closely as possible.
Only D and E give this option.
In D 'is to' and 'for promoting' are making it little wordy.
E is concise and clear.

So its E.

Imo E

Split 1 : "Seeking to spur science education " should modify "national Science Foundation" to make the meaning clear .
Drop A, B, and C
Now D and E are grammatically correct but D has meaning error .
The goal of the Nation Science Foundation is to promote science education. To accomplish this goal they will spend 25 million dollars over the 10 years.
In D we have "to" infinitive at the wrong place it should be before promote to establish causality.
E is correct
