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.

Grant Award Numbers

In FY22, faculty submitted 1,294 proposals through the Office of Sponsored Projects.  During this same period, there were 196 research awards processed through the Office of Sponsored Projects.

The total research dollars awarded to the University through proposals submitted or contracts negotiated by the Office of Sponsored Projects and gifts designated for research in FY22 is $78,248,109.  This total does not include any cost share amounts.  Each School/Center contributed to this total as follows:
