UH 47th nationally in federal research
The University of Hawaii at Manoa saw a 30 percent increase in federally funded research -- to $187 million -- in fiscal year 2004, according to a survey by the National Science Foundation.
The report ranks UH-Manoa at 47th in the country in federal expenditures and 25th in the country among public universities, said Gary Ostrander, UH-Manoa vice chancellor for research, in a news release.
"The fact is that we had the largest rate of growth from one year to the next -- more than 30 percent -- of any of the top 100 research institutions in the U.S.," Ostrander said.
The increase matches the increase in federal expenditures for the 2003 fiscal year, when the university reported nearly a 30 percent increase in federal spending to $143.6 million, ranking UH-Manoa at 31st in the nation for public universities and 54th in the country for all universities.
Survey results are not available for the 2005 federal fiscal year.
