Each year, the UC Berkeley campus receives well over half a billion dollars in research support from external sources. In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015, UC Berkeley attracted $691.1 million in new research funding. Many of these research awards fund multi-year projects and support expenditures that will be reflected in subsequent years.
The federal government provided 56 percent of these sponsored research funds, and California state agencies and other government sources, industry, and the non-profit sector supplied the rest. Of the research funding provided by the U.S. government, the largest contributors are the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
