2020 – 2021 Research Funding

In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021, UC Berkeley attracted $1.05 billion in new awards from external sources.  Many of these awards fund multi-year research projects and support expenditures that will be reflected in subsequent years. The federal government provided 58 percent of these funds, and California state agencies and other government sources, industry, and the nonprofit sector supplied the rest. Of the research funding provided by the U.S. government, the largest contributors are the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
