ISU sets sponsored funding record

Iowa State received more than $230 million in sponsored funding during fiscal year 2003, a record high. This is an increase of 2.2 percent over the previous year's total of $225.4 million.

The $230 million includes all contracts, grants and gifts received directly by Iowa State for research, public service/extension activities, educational projects, student financial aid, buildings and equipment. Sponsored funding for research alone was more than $148 million, also a record for Iowa State.

Support from federal agencies increased by more than 4 percent to $152.9 million. Non-federal sources overall decreased by about 2 percent in FY03. Support from foundations and associations was up by 13 percent (to $22.8 million), and support from businesses, corporations and commodity groups remained steady at about $26 million. Support from state, county and city government agencies, as well as from other universities and colleges, also was down.
