Record year for external grants and contracts provides ‘much to celebrate’

Miami faculty and staff successfully competed this past year for external grants and contracts totaling more than $15 million, a record amount that represents an 8.3 percent increase from the previous high set the year before.

When $8.2 million of student financial aid from federal and state sources is included, the total increases to $23.3 million.

"There is much to celebrate. The numerous awards illustrate the wide range of interests of our talented faculty and give an insight into the excitement of the intellectual environment at Miami," said William Rauckhorst, associate provost for scholarship and teaching.

"The quality of this intellectual environment is important for its own sake and also because of its profound impact on education at the university," he added.

A breakdown of the $15,043,582 in grants and contracts received July 1, 2000, through June 30, 2001, reveals that $6.6 million is from the federal government, $3.9 million from the state government, $327,124 from other government agencies, $2.5 million from industry and business and $1.7 million from foundations and associations.

There were 340 separate awards for research, instruction and service. External funding for faculty research projects increased from $8.3 million to $9.4 million, a jump of 14 percent.
The National Science Foundation was the largest single source of funding with 26 awards totaling $2.3 million.

A variety of services are available from the office for the advancement of scholarship and teaching to help faculty considering applying for grants.
