UF faculty earn $861 million in research awards
UF faculty earned $861 million in research funding in fiscal year 2021 – the second-highest amount ever – despite the ongoing challenges presented by the pandemic. This total does not include an additional $77 million in non-research U.S. Department of Education funding that UF received through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. The total including those funds was $938 million.
“Overall, the performance of UF faculty and staff last year was remarkable, particularly considering the constant challenges presented by the COVID pandemic,” said David Norton, Ph.D., UF vice president for research.
