Research funding at Oregon State University was over a quarter-billion in 2008-09 – up $21 billion over the previous year.

“We reached that quarter-billion without any federal stimulus funding coming in,” Bloomer said. He added that he expects OSU to set a record for 2009-10. More than $12 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grants have been received by OSU for this fiscal year.

Bloomer said external research funds primarily support people, such as students and research staff, and help create opportunities for a quality education at OSU.
