UW Sets Record for External Research Funding

Faculty members at the University of Wyoming received a record 86 million dollars in external funding in the 2012 fiscal year. Vice President for Research and Economic Development Bill Gern says the impact on Wyoming’s economy is much greater than the 86 million dollar
total.

In addition to the 86 million dollars in research awards to faculty, UW received 43 million dollars in direct student loan funding and another $33 million in institutional awards, primarily from federal Abandoned Mine Lands dollars. Including those awards, UW received a total of 163 million dollars in external funding during the 2012 fiscal year.
