Penn Research Statistics

The research enterprise at Penn is a large one and has been growing substantially. The two graphs reflect this growth, and indicate that in FY02 Penn received more than $600,000,000 in research awards from extramural sponsors. In current dollars this represents a growth rate of about 10% compounded annually over the last 10 years.

Funding comes primarily from the Federal government (about 85%), with the remainder from not-for-profit foundations and associations (about 10%), and from commercial sponsors (<5%).
