SD Universities Get Record Research Awards
August 11, 2010, 1:20 PM
PIERRE, SD -
Total research awards to South Dakota's six public universities set a record in the fiscal year that just ended.
The South Dakota Board of Regents says awards exceeded $154 million, up more than $44 million from the previous fiscal year.
Regents CEO Jack Warner says research awards from external funding sources such as the federal government and private corporations have grown considerably in recent years. He says the amount now nearly equals the level of state support appropriated for the public university system.
