ORU FY12 Funding Summary

The FY12 competitive budget process has been completed for all previously supported as well as newly proposed organized research units (ORUs) who sought campus-level funding support from the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement.

Sixteen previously funded ORUs, four Joint Institutes, and eight previously unfunded ORUs submitted and presented their proposals in a public forum on March 7th and 8th, 2011. There were many worthy proposals. However, $3.1 million in funding was available to allocate for $5.5 million in requests. Based on evaluation of the proposals, presentations, past performance, future potential, and other sources of support, fifteen previously funded ORUs, four Joint Institutes, and two ORUs receiving funding for the first time, will receive funding in FY12.

All funding provided is considered “one-time one-year” funding for the sole purpose of fostering the mission and objectives of the ORU as defined in the proposal. Continued, on-going funding is not guaranteed. For details of FY12 allocations, download the ORU FY12 Funding Summary (PDF).
