EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Aug. 18, 2023) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University faculty and staff secured $147.4 million in research and program funding in fiscal year 2023 – a $50 million jump over the previous year, Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. announced today at the university’s back-to-school gathering for faculty and staff.
External contracts and grants have increased by more than $85 million since FY2020 at North Carolina A&T, which is one of the University of North Carolina System’s top three most productive research universities.
The new total “not only represents the first time that our faculty have won more than $100 million in external support, it amounts to astonishing growth of 138% over a four-year span,” Martin told more than 1,000 faculty and staff at this morning’s gathering. “Those grants fund significant scientific discovery and the pursuit of solutions that advance the human condition.”
