Sponsored Projects

INTERNATIONAL PROJECT SPONSORS

Nearly one billion dollars in project funding over the last five years has come to UC from sponsors outside the United States. Pharmaceutical companies based in Japan, Great Britain and Switzerland are among the largest project sponsors, sponsoring both fundamental medical research and clinical trials of new therapies. International automobile and chemical companies also contribute significantly to UC research in engineering and material science.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PROJECT SPONSORS

The federal government provided about $16.4 billion to UC in sponsored project funding over the last five years, which is well above half of UC’s total sponsored project funding. Medical research and related projects funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the largest single component of that funding. The National Science Foundation (NSF), which funds a wide range of projects in physical, biological, chemical, engineering and social sciences, is the second largest federal sponsor. Together, NIH and NSF provide about three-quarters of UC’s federal funding.

DOMESTIC U.S. PROJECT SPONSORS

UC attracts project funding from every state in the Union, amounting to more than $5.3 billion over the past five years. Of this total, nearly $2.2 billion is from non-profit organizations; $1.7 billion is provided by corporate sponsors; and about $1.4 billion is from other higher education institutions, with much of that in the form of sub-awards for federally funded projects.

CALIFORNIA STATE GOVERNMENT PROJECT SPONSORS

California’s state agencies rely on UC’s research capabilities to inform their policies and operations, and they also depend on UC’s institutional strengths and its community presence to provide social services and healthcare to citizens throughout the state. The two largest sources of state funding are the California Department of Public Health, which funds a wide range of research and social service programs, and the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, which supports fundamental stem cell research seeking innovative new therapies. These, combined with all other state agencies, awarded UC over $2.4 billion over the last five years.
