Yes! So far in 2021–22, we received a faculty startup grant from the Murdock Trust to support a new tenure-line position in biology. Faculty members have received research support from the American Physical Therapy Association, Campus Compact, the Mortenson Foundation, the National Board of Certified Counselors, and Western North American Naturalist.
We have 18 active federal research grants with combined awards totaling more than $3.5 million in grant funding: 14 from the National Science Foundation, two from the National Endowment for Humanities, one from National Institutes of Health, and one from NASA. Six of these are in the closing phase of their projects; two are just beginning. Indirect cost recovery from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021, was $144,390, and projected indirect cost recovery for this fiscal year (July 1, 2021–June 30, 2022) is projected to be $147,379.
We currently have eight major foundation grants ranging from $100,000 to $1 million (Arthur Vining Davis Foundations Center for Speech and Effective Advocacy, Luce Foundation Luce Initiative for Asian Studies and the Environment, Luce Foundation Clare Boothe Luce Scholars, Mellon Foundation Engaging High-Impact Experiences, Mellon Foundation COVID-19 Response, Mellon Foundation Freedom Education Project Puget Sound, Mellon Foundation NW5C, Murdock Trust Master of Public Health) and a total of $218,000 in Murdock grants to advance faculty research.
