New grants this year

Summary: increased capacity
Reductions in state school funding to support the GSE are creating fiscal challenges. Fortunately, our efforts to support research and grant acquisition are succeeding. In fiscal year 2009-10, GSE faculty submitted 24 proposals, almost twice as many as the previous year. Of these, 11 proposals were funded: (three of which were submitted in fiscal year 2008-09). These will bring in $930,123 over the next four years. Six larger, federal grants submitted this year, worth approximately $2,790,000, are still pending decision.
