Notre Dame hits $133.7M in research funding in 2015, 71 percent from federal proposals


SOUTH BEND, Indiana — The University of Notre Dame received $133.7 million in research funding during the 2015 fiscal year, $20 million more than last year.

The Rev. John Jenkins, president of the university, says it was the most research funding the school has received in one year, calling it a testament to outstanding work being done by faculty.

About 71 percent of all successful proposals came from federal funding, 24 percent from foundations and other sponsors, and 4.5 percent from industrial sponsors.

The funding includes more than $6.6 million from the Department of Energy for continued research into radiation chemistry and photochemistry. More than $6 million came from the Microelectronics Advanced Research Corp. and the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency for the Center for Low Energy Systems Technology.
