SUMMARY OF EXTERNAL AWARDS
for the period July 1, 1995 through June 30, 1996

Annual Report from the Office of Research
at the University of Wyoming

As one of the Nation's land grant universities, the University of Wyoming executes several missions: to educate its students, conduct research, and provide service and outreach. These missions are vitally interwoven at the University in a strong, vigorous, academic community which serves the State of Wyoming.

Outstanding basic and applied research and creative activity at the University promotes excellence in the classroom, and also can result in regional, national, and international recognition for the institution. Certainly this recognition enhances the value of every degree granted by the University of Wyoming. Consequently, superior research and scholarly activity is of direct benefit to the University, its students, and its alumni.

Through the activities of our students, our faculty, and our staff, the University of Wyoming is involved in a wide range of creative endeavors. Members of the University community are actively engaged in the creative and performing arts, and conduct basic and applied research in most of our disciplines. During fiscal year 1996, the University of Wyoming submitted 576 proposals to potential sources for funding to support these research and creative activities.

This report contains a summary of the external awards which were granted to the University during fiscal year 1996. From July 1, 1995 through June 30, 1996, the University received 623 awards for funding from external sources totalling $37,003,545. Table 1 summarizes these awards by college\unit within the University and Table 2 provides a summary by the source of the funds. Tables 3 through 10 summarize the funds awarded by sponsor for departments within the University.

The largest portion of the total external funds granted to the University in fiscal year 1996 was received from the federal government (48%). The various federal agencies awarded $17,803,000 to the University for research and other activities. This continued federal support demonstrates a high degree of confidence in the quality of the University's research programs, and it speaks to the high caliber of our faculty and staff. State of Wyoming agencies awarded $13,708,000 (37%), and $5,493,000 (15%) was granted to the University from industry and other private organizations.

Indirect costs at the University of Wyoming are calculated by federal audit which establishes the rate by which the University may recover funds to reimburse costs it incurs that relate to research activity sponsored by the federal government. The approved federal indirect cost rate for sponsored projects is 41% of modified total direct costs. Of the actual amount collected on a fiscal year basis, 75 percent reimburses general University expenses, five percent is allocated to the Office of Research, and on an as-earned basis, 15 percent is distributed to the Department, and five percent to the relevant College. The dollar amount of the indirect costs collected during FY96 and returned to each of the colleges on this basis is shown in Table 11.

Total contracts and grants awarded to the University of Wyoming during FY96 represents a record amount of external funding for the tenth consecutive year. The graph on page 13 shows the increases in total contracts and grants each fiscal year from FY87 through FY96.
