Continued Growth in Research Funding

Faculty across the campus received $141.6 million in research awards in fiscal 2018, surpassing the University’s previous record of $138.1 million awarded in fiscal 2017. The amount is part of a trend that has led to a 75 percent increase in external research funding awarded to Notre Dame compared to 10 years ago. Nearly 63 percent of the awards came from federal funding, 24 percent from foundation and other sponsor funding, and about 13 percent from industry.
