ORU FY13 Funding Summary

The FY13 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.

Eighteen previously funded ORUs, four Joint Institutes, and six previously unfunded ORUs submitted and presented their proposals in a public forum on March 5th and 6th, 2012. There were many worthy proposals. However, $3.2 million in funding was available to allocate for $5.1 million in requests. Based on evaluation of the proposals, presentations, past performance, future potential, and other sources of support, sixteen previously funded ORUs, four Joint Institutes, and six ORUs receiving funding for the first time, will receive funding in FY13.

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 FY13 allocations, download the ORU FY13 Funding Summary (PDF).
