The University of Notre Dame received $113 million in research awards for fiscal year 2014, the highest ever recorded at the University in a non-stimulus year and a $17 million increase over the previous year.
Notre Dame received $119 million in 2010, but approximately $30 million was from government stimulus grants through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
“We have made a commitment to become a pre-eminent research institution, and I am pleased that even in an incredibly competitive market our researchers are rightly claiming their place among the world’s best,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University. “As we continue to grow and expand, I look forward to seeing the increasing impact Notre Dame’s faculty and students will make through research that is making a difference in our world.”
