Financial Report FY12

Year Ended June 30, 2012

The University of New Hampshire is funded by a combination of public and private support. Its largest source of revenue is derived from tuition and fees. As the University looks ahead, maintaining affordability and access for all qualified students, restoring the level of revenues derived from sponsored grants and contracts, and creating a culture of philanthropy in order to build its endowment will be the dominant areas of focus that contribute to a sustainable, resourceful, and responsible University.

IV. Sponsored Projects Proposals and Awards

Grant proposal revenue reached an all-time high in FY10 with $616M, while grant award revenue hit the highest mark with $165M in FY11. This gives UNH hope heading into FY13 for an increase in Facilities and Administrative (F&A) cost 
recovery revenue. FY11 and FY12 expenses reflect FY10–FY11 proposal and award increases. FY11 awards rose primarily due to American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds, now ending.
