Grants & You Newsletter Fall 2018: News & Deadlines

Grant Awards on the Rise at ATSU

ATSU principal investigators and project directors are generating positive trends in what remains an exceptionally tough climate for securing external grant dollars. FY 2018 data tracked by Sponsored Programs documents that the University received/processed just under $3.9 million in grant awards, of which ~$3.3 million was extramural funding. A review of the past 5 fiscal years (i.e., July 1, 2013-June 30, 2018) shows a consistent, upward swing in the number of notice of funding awards during ultra-competitive times on the federal, state, and foundation scenes. As depicted in Figure 1, ATSU Sponsored Programs reports a 32% increase in notices of award, growing from 44 in FY 2014 to 58 in FY 2018. The total value of all awards for FY 2018 was $3,897,381—a rise of more than $900,000 from the prior year. Figures 2 and 3 show the breakdown of those awards by source and funding category, respectively. While it is still early, the news for FY 2019 is also encouraging given that ATSU has already received several new notices of award, including some larger federal grants.
