The federal government’s nearly $800 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), provides $15 billion in additional funding to federal agencies for research. Rutgers faculty and staff compete for peer-reviewed grants from federal funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the Nation Institutes of Health, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Rutgers is among the world’s premier research institutions, and the awards it receives through ARRA will have a major impact on New Jersey and the nation. The awards will accelerate innovation, create jobs and addresses some of society’s most pressing challenges.
This web page will summarize the impact of these awards on Rutgers and provide the latest news on recovery act funding awarded to Rutgers researchers.
