The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) is a tier-one research institution that fosters the advancement of cutting-edge research discoveries and technology. UT Dallas receives funding from various federal agencies, state agencies, industry, and foundations. These funds are generally awarded in multi-year contract or grants, therefore the amount recorded as received each year may not reflect the research being done in that year.

The Office of Research and Innovation oversees research metrics for the institution, including proposals and total research dollars awarded, research expenditures, and licensing revenue.

In 3rd quarter FY22 (March 1, 2022, through May 31, 2022), the Office of Research assisted faculty with 260 proposals.  During this same period, there were 27 research awards processed through the Office of Research.

The total research dollars awarded to the University through proposals submitted or contracts negotiated by the Office of Research and gifts designated for research in 3rd quarter FY22 is $14,809,173.  This total does not include any cost share amounts.  Each School contributed to this total as follows:  

Behavioral and Brain Sciences$8,917,531
Engineering and Computer Sciences$4,302,063
Natural Science and Mathematics$1,490,579
Research Gifts$95,000
