University of Iowa sets record for external support

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The University of Iowa has set a record for external support by collecting $466.5 million in fiscal year 2010, a nine percent increase over 2009.

The new record continues a trend that has been seen over the last decade.  

Jordan Cohen, Interim Vice President for Research and Economic Development, credits the creative and innovative ideas from faculty for the increase.  

Since 1967, when overall records were first kept, the university has raised $7.1 billion in total external support, a number that continues to keep the University of Iowa ranked among the nation's elite public research universities.

The most recent National Science Foundation survey, done in 2008, ranks the University of Iowa 20th among public universities in terms of federally financed expenditures for research and development.

The University of Iowa got more than $40 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding through 165 grants.

Below is a list of UI's major funding sources, how much they donated and the percentage up or down from 2009:

--Dept. of Health & Human Services (includes $219 million from NIH): $240.5 million (up 11.7%).

--NASA: $9.6 million (up 4.6 percent).

--Department of Education: $22.4 million (up 19.1 percent).
