North Carolina A&T Logs Record Year in Sponsored Research Awards: $62.5 Million

Already the state’s third most productive public research university, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University took in a school-record $62.5 million in research contracts and grants in 2016-17, school leaders announced today.

External research funding at North Carolina A&T now has more than tripled over the past 16 years, growing from $18.4 million in 2001 to $62.5 million in 2017. The supermajority of A&T research awards come from federal sources -- the most competitive arena for research funding. 

The growth also comes during a period in which federal spending on research decreased as a percentage of national gross domestic product and during which across-the-board budget cuts caused by sequestration produced significant decreases in available research funding.
