USD FY11 grants contracts report shows growth despite obstacles
The University of South Dakota is made up of eight colleges and schools. Each of these units helped contribute to the overall growth. Many departments have maintained or increased their successful grantsmanship, while others have the opportunity for growth in sponsored activities.
A downturn in the economy and increasing financial pressures has led to competitive budget changes for educational institutions across the state. This has also led to an increasing diversity in the sponsor agencies. While federal grant dollars still accounted for the majority of USD’s external funding, other funding aspects, such as nonprofit sources, saw growth as well.
“The fact that we reached a record amount in sponsored funding in 2011 is a testament to the dedicated researchers at USD,” said Laura Jenski, Ph.D., Vice President for Research at USD. “Our challenge is to develop new research partnerships, to continue moving onward with dwindling federal support.”
