The University of Notre Dame has received $128 million in research funding for fiscal year 2016 — the second highest in its history. In fiscal year 2015, the University’s research funding was its highest of all time, reaching $133 million.
“The research, scholarship and creativity of Notre Dame faculty continues to make a difference in multiple ways across our country and around the world,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the University’s president. “The growth in external funding is a tangible testimony to the importance of their work.”
Of the awards received in fiscal year 2016, 57 percent came from federal funding, with 16 percent from foundations and 15 percent from industry. Other sponsors, including foreign entities, local and state governments and nonprofit organizations, funded the remaining 12 percent.
