Researchers at Kansas State University pulled more than $151.3 million into the state through funding on research encompassing all areas of faculty strength — plant and animal health, cybersecurity, cancer and more — setting a funding record.
Between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013, the university submitted more than 1,300 proposals. They resulted in 880 awards, totaling $151,343, 529. That included almost $106 million in federal grants, nearly $8.3 million from industry and $8.8 million of private funding.
KSU President Kirk Schulz said, “To have set a record and surpassed our previous high of $147.6 million shows that K-State is committed to making progress on the K-State 2025 goals.”
