UConn research funding surges to record levels

UConn has hit an impressive new high in external research funding, with its faculty attracting more than $375 million in new awards in the past fiscal year at Storrs, UConn Health, and the regional campuses despite competing for the grants against the backdrop of the global pandemic.

The University secured a then-record amount of $285.8 million in research funding in the 2019-20 fiscal year, but had never exceeded $300 million until now.
