Increase in Faculty Grant Proposal Submissions
For the second year in a row, the number of faculty grant submissions, total amount of dollars requested, and awards granted were increased in FY 2013. Total dollars awarded, however, were down--from $13.7 million to $13.1 million. This correlates with an 18.5% decrease in federal dollars awarded (largely due to a significant decline in NSF awards from an all-time high in 2012). However, funding from state/local government and private sources was increased from FY 2012 in accordance with a larger number of submissions to these sources. Research awards accounted for 52% of total awards, a slight increase from 2012. The total number of awards from private sources was 48%, the highest in the last five years. Kudos to all faculty summiting grant requests, and thank you for your contributions to scholarship at Loyola.
